See Mexico through the eyes of Houston’s early artist, Houston South and North of the Border: Houston Paints Mexico Exhibit. More than 60 works of art are showcased.

Texas and Mexico are neighbors who have been intertwined economically, culturally and imaginatively for centuries. Starting in earnest in the 1920s, Houstonians joined the growing numbers of American artists making the journey south. This exhibition showcases the experiences of early Houston artists and how their travels in Mexico influenced their later work.

Exhibit is free and open to the public.

The exhibit is open now through November 10, 2018, at the Julia Ideson Building – Tudor Gallery | 550 McKinney St., 77002 | 832-393-1313.
