Black Velvet- A Rasquache Aesthetic exhibit

March 17 @ 12:00 pm - April 15 @ 4:00 pm

This exhibit of 100 vintage and contemporary Velvet Paintings represents various themes, painting skills, painting styles and geographies. From the popular Velvi’s (multiple Elvises) and happy clowns to iconic images of Southwestern landscapes, the Mexican boy and his donkey to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the exhibit provides an introduction to the medium for some and a calling back to their youth for others. This exhibit of black velvet paintings argues the opposite sides of aesthetic.

IMPORTANTPlease note that the opening hours for the Black Velvet are as follows: Thursday-Sunday, 12-4 p.m. Free entry. Closed Easter holiday weekend. 

FREE Entry
