(April 20, 2011)--The UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures will present the photography of San Antonio artist Luis Garza in an exhibit running through June 19. Garza is the fifth of 10 artists to be showcased in the Contemporary Artist Series organized by Arturo Almeida, who also curates the UTSA Art Collection. The exhibit is free with ITC admission.
>> An opening reception, free and open to the public, will be 6-8 p.m., Thursday, April 21 at the Institute of Texan Cultures.
The exhibit showcases Garza's yearlong project of taking one photograph each day of the year.
"What was an excellent excuse to do something I love every day, cycled through being an automated task, turning into an unconscious burden and back again to something I love," said Garza.
The photographs promise to hold your attention. With a variety of subject matter, there is everything from hands in motion to a desolate parking lot to a smiling portrait. Whether in color or black-and-white, each piece has a distinct message or sentiment.
For more information about the exhibit, call 210-458-4983.
The Institute of Texan Cultures is at 801 E. Durango Blvd. in downtown San Antonio. Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Saturday, and noon-5 p.m., Sunday.
