VISUAL ARTS + MUSEUMS
The Serie Project - Visual Art Exhibit
Presented by MECA (Multicultural Education and Counseling Through the Arts) at MECA
September 6 - September 27, 2013
MECA Performing Arts opens the 2013-14 season by welcoming back Serie Project - Visual Art Exhibit of Austin, Texas.
Founded by artist Sam Coronado, The Serie Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the fine art of serigraphy and offers an Artist-in-Residence program that allows participants to learn the technique and create a limited edition of prints under the guidance of a Master Printer.
Hoping to increase the presence of minorities in the art world, The Serie Project encourages multi-racial participation and two-third of all resident artists are Latino.
The serigraphs produced by The Serie Project have gained the attention and support of museums nationally such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in California, Mexic-Arte Museum in Texas, and the Hispanic Research Center at Arizona State University in Tempe. The project is one of the founding members of Consejo Gráfico, the first nationally recognized consortium of Latino printmakers in the United States.
Some of the artists whose work will be included in the exhibit at MECA include Alma López, Esther Hernández, Malaquias Montoya, Margarita Cabrera, Sam Coronado, and Delilah Montoya.
The exhibit opening will be held on Friday, September 6, 2013 at 7 p.m.
The exhibit will run September 6-27, 2013.
Admission: Free and open to the public
Time: 12:00 to 7:00 pm (Mon-Fri)
