Description

Carmen Lomas Garza celebrates her Mexican American heritage through traditional art forms rendered in her unique style. Among those forms are papeles picados, the Mexican art of cut paper, familiar as banners that flutter in the breeze at birthday parties. Imagine these paper cut-outs as grand in scale as the great Mexican murals, built to withstand Texas hurricane winds and abate freeway noise, but like their paper ancestors, letting air and light pass. In paper, the cut-outs might seem as ephemeral as the lived experience they celebrate, but cut into steel, they speak to the enduring significance of culture, life and hope.

In Person: Director Arturo Garza and Artist Carmen Lomas Garza  will appear along with her unique art.
