(May 18, 2011)--The public has until May 20 to view "El Jardin de la Vida," an exhibition of the art of UTSA alumna Cecilia Paz Mujica. The exhibit pieces offer lush colors to evoke deep sentiments about the diverse nature of day-to-day life experiences. The exhibition is in the University Center Gallery 23 on the UTSA Main Campus.

It also contains images of the "Life Tree" mural hanging in the UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center, "Rowdy the Roadrunner" hanging in the Office of Student Activities, as well as other works by the artist.
