In 2012 Texas Folklife and the Brownsville Historical Association (BHA) partnered on Taquerías of Southmost, a research, documentation, exhibit, outreach and promotion project. Texas Folklife conducted fieldwork in the Southmost community as part of its National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)-funded statewide survey of food traditions.  The goals of the project were to create a start-up cultural program to provide services to an underserved community and to bring significant promotion to a neighborhood with rich cultural and culinary offerings.

This event will feature a talk by exhibit photographer Chuy Benitez and presentation by Mando Rayo, co-author of The Tacos of Texas, to be published by the University of Texas Press in September 2016.

A limited number of free tacos will be provided courtesy of some of Austin's finest Rio Grande Valley-inspired taquerías.
