Example from the exhibit

Octavio Medellin: Maya-Toltec Temples and Carvings, 1938

On view through midsummer
Hamon Arts Library Second Floor

Funded by San Antonio art patron Lucy Maverick, artist Octavio Medellin spent six months in 1938 researching Yucatan’s Mayan-Toltec ruins of Chichen Itza and at Uzmal; this exhibition includes reproductions of a selection of Medellin’s photographs and drawings. The latter figured prominently in the portfolio XTOL: Dance of the Ancient Mayan People (Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, 1947), a copy of which also is included in the exhibition. The originals of all of these items are part of the Medellin papers in Jerry Bywaters Special Collections, located on the Hamon Art Library’s second floor. More information.
