It’s been nearly two years since the world lost New Mexican Ernesto Antonio “Tony” Mares.
The poet and playwright left behind a strong body of work.
Argos McCallum, executive director of Teatro Paraguas, was a friend and wanted to honor Mares.
“Tony was just such an amazing man,” McCallum says. “He was an activist, a poet and playwright. He was also in one of our productions. This is where our friendship blossomed.”
