August 3, 2019 | El Paso Strong
istory tells us that the memory of the tumultuous tragedy that happened to our city will never fade.
We will always remember where we were when we received the shocking news that we were in the midst of a terrorist attack. We will never forget the panic as we dialed loved ones hoping it was their voice we would hear on the other end. We will never forget the anxiety as we waited for our friends and families to connect so we could breathe a sigh of relief. We will never forget when we heard that there were casualties. We will never forget the reports of the horrible truth unfolding among us in real time through our social media, both a blessing and a curse. It is impossible to find words to describe how our city was changed on that hot sunny day. We’ll forever remember August 3, 2019. We all know the next part of the story. The 22 people who never made it home, the 22 families who will never have their loved one walk through the front door. The 22 mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, daughters, sons and friends who will never have their faces seen again. In these faces we’ve seen our city’s
story. A story of faith in humanity, a story of kindness to a stranger, and a story of the loss of our innocence. We have gained a new understanding of the value of protections, the value of community and the value of love. When the active shooter alert went out to all those wearing badges, each ran without a second thought to the site being attacked to protect our city. There’s always a plan of action if, heaven forbid, any such attack should be made on us. Sadly, this time, it was not a drill. Everyone in the medical world dropped what they were doing and ran to the area hospitals, even those off duty in our military, ran to protect. Our men and women in uniform all did what they were trained to do. They are our heroes. Now, we all know the raw fear of walking into Walmart for the first time since the attack. We must take that first step. The first step shows strength; it shows the ability to slowly heal. The existence of our community is dependent on us to moving forward, to not get stuck, to not give power to the attacker. It will be hard to rebuild a sense of security, but we will. We will never get back our innocence, we’ll never be those people that aren’t conscious when we enter a large building. We are forever changed. I believe instead of walking in fear, we must be mindful of the community that surrounds us. We’ll smile at every neighbor, every El Pasoan, and share our love. That’s who we are: a city that shares love. Collectively, respectfully, El Paso has honored and will continue to honor the memory of the lives lost. We will forever remember the date on the calendar—August 3, 2019—as the deadliest attack on our city, one of the safest cities in the United States. Terrorism has attacked our innocence and has left a forever gaping hole in our hearts. Terrorism killed 22 of our people and left us grieving, fearful and uncomfortable—but our story is a story of hope; the hope that we never take love for granted, that we never take the sight of a loved one, the kiss of a family member, the touch of a hand or the words “I love you” for granted. What will we ever do that can fill the hole in our hearts? Absolutely nothing, the hole reminds us of them; the 22 who lost their lives, the 24 injured, the 46 victims and the heroes in our city. Above all, we will always be reminded of the love in our city despite hateful prejudice that first caused shock, then disbelief, and forever grief. No doubt the unheard stories will keep unfolding. 22 will always be a number for us, a number imprinted in our minds. 22 lost, but many more kind actions.

Local Design Studio
Earns national Recognition
| By: JAMIE LIVINGSTON | ith the population of El Paso on a constant
rise, development is booming. Within every
region of the Sun City, you’ll find that metal
and brick-and-mortar fixtures are now replacing
once empty, dirt-filled lots. Most of this development is commercial, and signage for businesses such as Independent Burger, Hotel Indigo, Boss Chicken and Stanton House is a sure way to lure people in. With bright colors and big lettering, it’s hard not to notice such businesses, and it’s all thanks to one local company—EME Design Studio. College sweethearts Iris Morales and Joel Martinez, now married, started their company eight years ago with a big dream but little clientele. What started out as helping a few businesses succeed with their branding has now blossomed to a much larger geographical scale. “We are still small but we have big hearts and we’re always looking to get better. Now, we are very fortunate to have clients outside of El Paso looking to work with us. We’ve worked with clients in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Austin, New York, Connecticut, Singapore, London and Mexico,” Joel said. And, more recently, Joel and Iris have even more to be proud about: their designs have garnered global recognition. “This year we were awarded a National Gold ADDY, which is probably our biggest yet. The American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs, is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local AAF Ad Club competitions,” said Joel. It’s a

September, 2019 EME was awarded five gold and one silver in the International Indigo Design Awards, a ceremony held annually in the world’s most fascinating cities. The work is judged by a jury, handpicked for their innovative contributions in the digital design world. Last year’s ceremony was held in Japan, which Joel said he was blessed to attend. For Joel, the recognition is more of a sign to keep serving his community and the needs of local businesses in the city he holds so dear. “I think these awards just let us know we are doing something right. It is a guide for us to realize that our work can compete with any other work, even top agencies with big budgets. Clients and potential clients might be able to find out, but the exposure is really more within the industry. Regardless, it does seem to help when potential clients realize we’ve won awards since they feel we can make award winning work for them.”

Their quality designs are also putting them in a different category—print production. “We also received a merit award by ‘How Promotion & Marketing Design Awards,’ a competition which celebrates original recipes for outstanding promo-driven design.

Flight & Flowers As Inspiration | By: MARKO MORALES |
he desert Southwest is a unique beauty made up primarily of earth tonesâ€”mostly browns and beiges with countless shades of green. In this landscape, the eye almost has no choice but to be drawn to bright colors that at times appear unexpectedly and almost always feel artistically placed. The drive between Colorado and El Paso is one Christopher Weed is not only familiar withâ€” much of the inspiration for his most recent installation came from the eye-catching colors of the desert flowers he saw many times as he drove south past the Rockies and toward the Franklin Mountains. The artist, originally from Philadelphia, and quarter-century-long resident of Denver, met El Paso native Samantha Silva through the Museum of Cultural Affairs Department after both applied for an opportunity to participate www.thecitymagazineelp.com
F l i g h t & F l o w e r s A s I n s p i r at i o n
in different programs. Samantha was accepted into the department’s Allied Artist Program, after being selected out of a group of almost 20 others to work as an artist assistant. The process for Christopher began approximately two years back, when he applied to be part of a pool of anywhere between 400 and 500 hopeful artists to be considered for El Paso’s latest large-scale public art project. Christopher was among 100 artists that remained in the running. Eventually, three artists were selected to pitch their ideas to an artist selection committee, where Christopher’s vision was ultimately chosen. Christopher’s concept appealed greatly to the committee. However, due to reasons outside the artist’s control, the location of where his work would stand needed to be changed. This presented him with the challenge of taking his original idea and working it into a design that better fit its newly decided location. After about five different versions of his original idea were approved by the committee, Christopher landed on a final concept. While his original idea had more individual pieces to it and focused on a different color, the new location allowed Christopher to go bigger and a bit more complicated in terms of engineering.

Black Alfred El Paso, Texas Instagram & Facebook @blackalfredofficial blackalfred.com
Black Alfred Christian Moeres comes from a long line of master woodworkers. His grandfather, great-grandfather and so on, all practiced the trade for centuries in Cologne, Germany. His career in the military would eventually lead him to Fort Bliss, where he, ironically enough, found himself drawn to woodworking—albeit in a very different fashion than his relatives. Inspired equally by El Paso’s sunny environment and the latest trends and fashion highlights, Christian decided to start a sunglasses company. The first pair of shades were completed in 2016, and they haven’t stopped since. Black Alfred, designed in El Paso, now features a litany of styles for every type of customer. You can find them online and at any of El Paso’s farmers markets, where Christian sets up every weekend. Although his military service ends later this year, Christian was quick to affirm his commitment to our city: “This is home now. Really, I love everything about it here.

September, 2019 like. “The work is installed and exhibited in the same manner that we install professional artwork, and it gives the students the opportunity to see their work in a professional gallery setting and gives them exposure to a larger audience,” Doyle said. The exhibition was also a wonderful way to feature the talents of the UTEP Art Department. In the wake of the Walmart massacre on Saturday, August 3 that turned our city upside down, I found many of the pieces to be deeply personal and moving. Each one giving its audience a glimpse into the history that lead to the specific piece’s existence. “Two Homes” by Jazmin Sanchez showcased a sight familiar here in El Paso—a pair of twin license plates, one from Texas and another from Chihuahua reading “home.” The piece automatically drew me back to memories of scouring downtown streets for parking on Saturday mornings to go shopping amidst
The Original Handcrafted Custom Cinnamon Roll
a sea of cars bearing those same plates. I am reminded of bus stations, panaderias, joy and laughter pouring from a city that is welcoming and proud. I can almost hear the symphony of language flooding the atmosphere from onlookers at “Los Lagartos” at the heart of the city- English and Spanish fluttering in the air in an almost perfect dissonance. In the midst of a rather somber time I found the exhibit and its pieces a subtle reminder of the many moving parts, pieces and ideologies that make the “sun city” just that: warm and inviting. This is exactly the line of thought and dialogue the Rubin Center wishes to create— an open conversation about binationality, interculturalism and “la frontera” that stems from provoking, contemporary art. That’s what good art does, it gets you talking. “We strive to deepen public appreciation of contemporary art and to inspire active dialogue about its social, political and cultural implications through
programming, providing a framework for critical thinking about contemporary art and its place in our world,” Doyle said. www.thecitymagazineelp.com
September, 2019 The city has much more to look forward to in the upcoming exhibitions, including a cross-border radio-tuner project coming in November. Doyle was passionate about bringing awareness to all that the Rubin Center is doing for international art, specifically for El Paso and its sister city, Juรกrez. The Rubin Center welcomes visitors with open arms. The gallery is open for public viewing during weekdays from 10:00 a.m. on and by appointment. The Rubin Center, like most El Pasoans, welcomes visitors with open arms, a warm embrace and will probably invite you to stay a while.

Ultimately, Michelle said of the collaboration that “we had this idea to do a tie-in with the festival, but we weren’t sure they’d be into it. But they liked the idea, we met with them and talked about what we envisioned and what they’d like to see in the collaboration, and it came together really quickly.” Michelle and Gino have curated the show carefully and generously.

van Isaac Calderon’s parents noticed something odd about their child at an early age. At just three years old, little Ivan was enthusiastically drawing religious art at the behest of his devout Catholic family, particularly his grandmother. “She would put me to drawing and would say, ‘Mijo, draw Jesus,’” says Ivan. With religion as the central pillar of his household early on, Ivan remembers watching the earliest scheduled service every Sunday morning through sleepy eyes, then drawing art based on the teachings.

Nations M arianna Olague, an El Paso native, won the Mercedes-Benz
Financial Services Emerging Artist Award while attending
graduate school at Cranbrook University in Michigan. She
was one of only nine students nominated for this award. This
prestigious award is given to a graduate student to help them have “an opportunity to be exposed to another art community
in the world and make connections post grad school,” said Marianna. The MBFS Emerging Artist Award gave Marianna the opportunity to live in Berlin, Germany, for a few months. While in Berlin, she noticed things that reminded her of her home while being 5,589 miles away. “So far in Berlin, I have been amazed by the presence of so many cultures existing side by side in one place,” she said. “Many other European countries surround Berlin, which makes it a unique hub where they all come together. By simply walking down the street or going to the supermarket I get to experience a variety of languages and customs and in that way, I’m reminded of home. I think it’s clear that art has been a huge catalyst for change in Germany, and Berlin is at the center of that. The art I see around town is thought provoking and always challenging the status quo.” Marianna’s paintings represent the beauty in our diversified culture due to being a border town. After moving 1,739 miles to Michigan, Marianna realized “how unique and special El Paso is.” Just like many young adults that move away from home they start to appreciate it in a different way. “It’s the combination of cultures that makes it a place like no other. I love that two primary languages are spoken interchangeably everywhere I go in EP. I love that El Paso celebrates Mexican American culture and has close ties with Mexico and its people. I love that even though El Paso is in the United States it feels like you are living in two nations simultaneously,” she explained. How Marianna feels about El Paso’s diversified culture is prominent in her art. Viewing them can give the visitor a glimpse of the warmth El Paso brings and a native will feel at home. “Lastly what influences me about El Paso is the quality of light. It is so incredibly bright there and the amount of exposed sky is unique for a city. My artwork strives to capture these things,” she said. Marianna’s artwork captures everything www.thecitymagazineelp.com
that influences her from El Paso. It beautifully shows how unique, strong, and beautiful our culture is.

he Las Cruces-based art gallery Art Obscura is a treasure within the regional arts community. From featuring around 120 local artists
showcasing their art in the gallery, to hosting shows for both local and touring musicians, the unique space exudes a sleek, carefully curated aesthetic. It started with a passion—Deret Roberts is responsible for founding Art Obscura back on November 23, 2013 (on Black Friday he recalls), right around when he was graduating college with a degree in painting. He said of the inception of the idea, “I realized I needed to figure out something that wasn’t working a real job, and being in the art department I realized there are a lot of good artists making stuff. I figured let’s start a gallery.” The space has an eclectic look—both the outside, which sports massive paintings on

to foster a creative atmosphere on its own. “I feel like Art Obscura has been a safe 83
space for people. They can come out and be themselves, and meet like-minded people that are playing music or making art. Just creative people in general,” he said. This is especially true when they host live music— simultaneously some of the most intimate and rowdy shows in Las Cruces have taken place there in the past couple of years. Being at one of these shows feels like being a part of a community, where the people you meet at your first show will be at all of the other shows you go to. They have some of the best and most active local artists from both Las Cruces and El Paso (like Sorrytown, Sleepspent, Ziemba, etc.) playing frequently, and they also often host national touring acts—something that has made the gallery integral to Las Cruces’ music scene. The music side of things started quickly, only a few months after their opening in 2013. Deret said, “I was asked if we could host a show here. I was like, ‘yea I guess, that sounds fun.’
After that first night we were like, ‘wow we could do this more often, that was a blast!’ We started getting emails and started booking touring groups, and it’s been a blast.” The gallery has had an impact on Deret personally, in that he has “met so many awesome people from having this place

open—creative people, the type who I like being around.” It’s no surprise that the positivity fostered in the place spreads to those involved, and—from experience—to those who participate and take in the creative experience there. Art Obscura is a solid, necessary haven for artists in Las Cruces—from the beginners to the established professional artists selling and showcasing their art, be it music, visual art, antiques and plenty else that would take too long to list—go see it yourself and you’ll understand. It’s worth stopping by to take in the atmosphere, and maybe even see if there’s a piece of art you’d like to buy. It’s incredibly important to support your local art scene—especially nowadays—and Art Oscura has played an important role in doing just that.

TO SOLVE YOUR BACK PAIN PROBLEMS Because minimally invasive surgery uses a very small incision (usually about 1/2 inch in diameter), it reduces damage to surrounding tissue and muscles as compared to traditional surgical techniques. It also means that recovery times are greatly reduced and there is less pain after surgery. Minimally invasive surgery may be right for you if more conservative treatments have not helped to reduce your pain. www.thecitymagazineelp.com

How often should you work out to maintain a physically fit physique?
| By: LIZZIE MARTINEZ |
ou may see some people in the world who are very fit and are working out for hours on end, doing a ton of cardio and weights and jumping off the walls. Then you may see some people who do absolutely nothing and still look fit. Then you start to wonder ...
Well of course, a lot of it comes down to

your genetics. Most of us by age 20-25 start to understand our genetic makeup. You may see you can eat a lot and do nothing and never gain weight. You may see everything makes you gain weight, or possibly youâ€™re somewhere in-between.
If you never gain weight It’s probably not the best idea to do a ton of cardio. You want to look healthy, and doing a ton of cardio with a fast metabolism may have you looking like a skeleton. Don’t stay inactive, though, just because you are thin. Instead, try doing weight training three to four times a week and keeping a moderately high-carb diet. You should eat plenty of protein to maintain a hard look and have your cheat meals two to three times a week. Fats should be kept minimal, unless you are doing the keto diet, using fats for carb energy.
If everything makes you gain weight It’s a good idea to try and do something almost every day. If your body has a hard time burning up calories, you want to stay active. It’s usually suggested that someone overweight should do weight training three times a week and cardio three to four times a week. The diet should be moderately low-carb, moderate in healthy fats and high in protein. Cheat meals should be only once a week.
If you’re somewhere in-between: You can get away with a few missed workouts here and there, but completely stopping isn’t an option. Make sure you get in weight training at least three times a week and do cardio two to three times. Diet should be all-around equal with carbs, proteins and healthy fats. Cheat meals should be once maybe twice a week depending on how good you’ve been with your workouts.
How long should the workouts be? Cardio should always be at least 30 minutes.

ow many personal care products do you use per day? According to research done by the Environmental Working Group, “the average person uses 12 products daily. These products include shampoo,
toothpaste, soap, deodorant, lip balm, sunscreen, body lotion, hand sanitizer, shaving products, makeup, diaper cream and baby shampoo. Most people use cosmetics and other personal care items without a second thought, believing that the government oversees their safety. Not so.
