American History Does Not Begin with the White Man: Indigenous Themes in the Work of Mel Casas
October 26, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 27, 2018
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
