Overview of the Project:
The Art Museum of South Texas has received major funding support to document and honor the life and career of 20th century American artist and Texas Modernist, Dorothy Hood. Her life and art will be profiled in an exhibition and book entitled The Color of Being/ El Color del Ser : DOROTHY HOOD (1918-2000) - the first major critical overview of Hood's paintings and works on paper produced from the 1930s until her death in 2000. The exhibition will fill most of the Museum. Works of art for the exhibition will be drawn from the important museums, foundations, and private collections across the country. Hood's work is in the permanent collections of over 30 major museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Dallas Museum of Art, McNay Art Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. 

The Visitor Experience:
The first major retrospective of the early Texas abstract artist and renowned 20th century Modernist, Dorothy Hood, featuring 160 works.  This vibrant exhibition springs to life through interactive interpretives, providing a rich, immersive experience into the world of Dorothy Hood through her art. Watch an abstracted version of yourself walk along the corridor, “virtually touch” a Hood painting to explore her techniques, view the cosmos overhead in the gallery and even create a larger-than-life digital painting using Dorothy’s techniques with your own gestures!

Events and Educational Programs:

*In addition to guest curator, Susie Kalil, panelists will include Katie Edwards, PhD; artist Lynn Randolph; and Carey Rote, PhD; with Bill Otton, PhD as moderator.
