Mentes Hermosas, a Photo Exhibit

Art Moreno Jr.

Host Louie Saenz welcomes photographers Art Moreno Jr. and David Meneses to talk about their impactful photo exhibit called “Mentes Hermosas” or “Beautiful Minds.” A photo exhibit that shows the faces and people who live at a Mental Facility in Juarez, Mexico called “Visión en acción”  or Vision in Action.

Art hopes to help end the stereotype that those who are mentally ill are to be feared. Instead he hopes to show that these individuals are beautiful and deserve respect, even in their time of crisis.

He also hopes to provide much needed financial assistance to the sanctuary through the funds raised by donations and ticket sales for viewing this world-class, photo exposition.

Donations are processed by the El Paso Community Foundation.
