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.
On view until December 2016
Hamon Arts Library Third Floor
This exhibit displays photographs of collages created through the alteration and excavation of contemporary fashion magazines. Located on the third floor, this new body of work explores the intersections of new media, fashion advertising, photography, and the body. The exhibition will feature new work by SMU former adjunct lecturer Justin Shull, and SMU MFA graduate Colleen Shull.
