20 Years of the Serie Project
20 Years of the Serie Project celebrates two decades of the Artist-In-Residence program hosted by a landmark Latino arts organization in Austin. This exhibition features serigraphs from each of Serie Project’s twenty years and highlights a diverse group of local, national and international artists. The selected prints communicate a broad range of issues that are relevant to the Latino experience in Austin as well as around the world, such as social justice, identity, family and community. These works also represent the diversity of artistic styles and media that can be captured by the art of serigraphy.
The reception will be on Saturday, December 6, from 12pm – 2pm.
