American History Does Not Begin with the White Man: Indigenous Themes in the Work of Mel Casas
October 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Guest Curator Ruben C. Cordova, PhD. This Tricentennial exhibition will be comprised entirely of works in the collection of the Mel Casas Trust (his heirs). Includes a gallery talk by the curator. Several works will be 6′ x 8′ paintings from the famed “Humanscape” cycle. The balance will be small paintings completed after the “Humanscape” series ended. Most of these smaller, lesser-known paintings have not been exhibited in decades. They will make a powerful, critical exhibition, touching on debates surrounding the colonial nature of San Antonio’s history reflected in current Tricentennial celebrations. This exhibit runs from Sept 29-Oct 27, 2018
