The exhibit features art by Martin Rodriguez, Daniel Guerrero, Rolando Briseno, Ricky Armendariz, Tess Martinez, Terry Ybanez and Guillermina Zabala.
"Art that incorporates the use of words is one of my favorite contemporary art motifs," said Arturo Almeida, exhibit curator and UTSA art specialist. "This work offers excellent examples of this style. It is a pleasure to assemble work by these talented local artists and to participate in International Year of Languages events that have been done around the world."
The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the International Year of Languages symposium on multilingual education policy on Feb. 13 in the Buena Vista Theater (1.326) on the UTSA Downtown Campus. Read more in a UTSA Today story.
Exhibit hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. For more information, contact Arturo Almeida at (210) 458-4983.
