SOLO SHOWS / PROJECTS > 100 Years of Printmaking in San Antonio: Michael Menchaca

Exhibition Documentary
2019

For the final chapter of the series of exhibitions celebrating San Antonio’s rich printmaking tradition, Michael Menchaca transformed the McNay’s Lawson Print Gallery into an immersive environment of prints, paper installations, and video. A graduate of Texas State University and the Rhode Island School of Design, Menchaca has created a highly individualistic lexicon of signs and symbols that speak to the Mexican American experience, including immigration and the melding of cultures in South Texas.

This exhibition is organized by Lyle Williams, Curator of Prints and Drawings, for the McNay Art Museum. Lead funding is most generously provided by the Elizabeth Huth Coates Exhibition Endowment and the Arthur and Jane Stieren Fund for Exhibitions.
