Ben Muñoz got a nice shoutout and great photos in this recent Dallas Morning News article about the studio where he works!

 

"Circuslike images pop in turquoise and black ink in the woodcut print by artist Benjamin Muñoz. Words scream “Beyond Belief” and “El Otro Lado.

 

Muñoz, Chung and Vaniecia are part of a community of nearly 100 artists nestled in studios of warehouses sprayed rebelliously with graffiti and murals around Fabrication Street in West Dallas. The streets have long served as an equal opportunity canvas for artists of color. The same opportunity spills into the selection of print makers, painters and sculptors who work here in a warehouse zone known as the Tin District.

 

“Inclusion is something they think about constantly,” said Muñoz, who rattles off the names of neighboring artists who are Black, brown, Asian American and women.

 

About half of those in the studios here are artists of color or women or both, said Will Heron, an artist-liaison for the Tin District developers, West Dallas Investments. They’re the developers best known for the Trinity Groves restaurant complex near the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge."
