On May 10, 2013, Imagining More Foundation hosted its first Borderless Art Exhibit at The Women’s Building in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District to celebrate our first Borderless Sports & Art Scholarship recipients, Mandy Zeng and Rosa Vazquez.
Participants enjoyed appetizers and beverages, as well as a collection of paintings created by Mandy and photographs by Rosa. This event was open to the public allowing everyone a chance to meet the girls and to talk with them about their motivations, experiences, and the challenges that they faced while creating their projects.
The 2013 Borderless Art Scholarship was created in an attempt to examine the differences in cultural climates experienced by Mexican and American female teenagers participating in arts and sports. Students from San Francisco, CA, and San Luis Potosi, Mexico, were chosen to create an art project that best exemplifies the meaning of being a female athlete. Through the project, both students expressed their views about women’s roles in sports and they shared their personal experiences as athletes.
