Bernardo “Bernie” Diaz joined ACC in the Fall of 2019 and teaches Art Appreciation at ACC’s Round Rock Campus. Bernie currently serves as Assistant Chair within the Art Department and sits on both departmental and college-wide committees. He received his Master of Fine Arts degree in 2011 from Southern Methodist University – Meadows School of the Arts. Bernie also served as an adjunct instructor and artist-in-residence at the Meadows School where he taught courses and developed programming related to socially-engaged art practices. He left academia and made his way through various adventures in K-12 education, higher-ed administration, and non-profit program management before becoming an Assistant Professor of Art at ACC. In addition to maintaining his own studio-based practice, Bernie enjoys collaborating with others in conceptualizing and implementing socially-engaged art. His current body of work examines the access points and intersections between false nostalgia, queer narratives, and the ideological parameters of Chicanismo.
