Texas Contemporary Artists Series: Luis Valderas

Born and raised deep in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, Luis Valderas is a prolific native son whose work frequently includes references to both modern and ancient cultural roots. In his ever-growing and evolving body of work, Valderas creates contemporary narratives, inimitably expressed through a filter of Meso-American myth and iconography, that chronicle the Chicano experience on the borderlands and beyond.

This exhibit features 12 Valderas pieces, including El Sur Pacific—1945, an inlaid woodcut inspired by the stories his father told Valderas as a child about his experience serving in the South Pacific in World War II.
