The Down Market: Artist Franco Modini-Ruiz at Blue Star Arts District In this episode of The Down Market, the team heads to the Blue Star Arts district in SouthTown to meet with world-renowned artist, Franco Modini-Ruiz. Ruiz gives us a personal look into his past growing up as the son of an immigrant, his retirement from law work to become a full-time artist, and how the arts culture in SATX is used to validate and broadcast the rich culture of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, which was subjugated for much of San Antonio's history. He even takes the time to paint a fantastic portrait of the team! Check out this episode of The Down Market for a deeply personal look into the unique culture of San Antonio and its arts scene.
