UTSA Mexico Center hosts lecture by Sam Coronado

By Tim Brownlee
Assistant Director of Public Affairs

(Oct. 10, 2006)--The UTSA Mexico Center will host a lecture by artist Sam Coronado from noon to 1:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 13 in the Durango Building Southwest Room (1.124) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. The talk is free and open to the public.

As part of the center's Brown Bag Speaker series, Coronado will speak on "Latino Art: An Artist and Printer's Perspective."

Coronado began his career as an artist in 1969, when he was hired as a technical illustrator at Texas Instruments. He has worked in the graphic arts field ever since.

He has owned art studios in Dallas, Houston and Austin, and done illustrations for books and magazines in the United States, Mexico and France. His artwork has been exhibited in the United States, Mexico, Europe and Africa.

A painter turned printmaker, he began painting in oils and acrylics and has experimented in various media including printmaking, which eventually led to serigraphy.

In Austin, Texas, he co-founded the Mexic-Arte Museum, the state's official Mexican and Mexican-American art museum. Additionally, he founded the Serie Project, a nonprofit organization with a mission to create and promote serigraph prints created by Latino artists and others in a workshop environment.
