On exhibit: “Indigenous Warriors and Rituals of MesoAmerica” by Andy A. Villarreal. Through September 1. Monday-Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. | Saturday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Sam Z. Coronado Gallery. Andy’s background as a Texan and a Hispanic male help form his aesthetics. For the past 20 years, the Mexican culture has been a major source of inspiration to him. The pride in Andy’s culture creates an intense energy and enthusiasm to create his art. The heartbeat of the culture is the roots of what Villarreal’s work is about. “I try to embrace and celebrate the richness of the culture and its achievements as well as the sadness of its demise. Indigenous people and deities from Yucatan interact in varying times and places in my art.”
