Art Museum of South Texas

Designed for the art novice as well as any community member with the desire to learn how to get more out of looking at visual art, this exhibition guided visitors through 75 artworks from public and private Texas collections that create or deny the illusion of three dimensional space on a two dimensional plane. As visitors explored the galleries included in the exhibition, they were introduced to five themes: landscape, portraiture, still life, people and places, and abstraction.  Works of similar themes, but created by different artists, were juxtaposed to illustrate how artists’ styles vary from “deeply realistic space” to a “flat space”. Adding to the interactive educational structure of the exhibition, interactive art machines, art workbooks, and a family oriented special event days accompanied the exhibition.
