The Center for Mexican American Studies and Research (CMASR) is hosting “Honoring Women,” an art exhibit that has been installed the Moye Hall Routunda. Created by 69 Gentileschi Aegis Gallery Association (GAGA) members, the exhibition celebrates women through contemporary portraiture. This particular GAGA exhibit has traveled Texas, going as far as the Fort Worth Cultural Community Center, and was first shown in 2016 at the Guadalupe Cultural Center in San Antonio. Portraits are found in a variety of mediums and include Sister María Eva Flores, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Ann Richards, Mother Teresa, Emma Tenayuca, Frida Kahlo and more. A full-color catalog is available.

Additionally, the exhibit “Recuerdos de mi hermana” by Carolina Flores, sister of the late Sister Maria Eva Flores, CDP, has been installed in Providence Hall, Blue Room. This exhibit features paintings based on family snapshots.
