Location: downtown campus
Featuring the work of acclaimed Mexican artist Sandra Pani and sponsored by the Consulate General of Mexico, New Orleans, De Ser Árbol | Of Being a Tree creatively expresses the process of dissolution, reintegration, and the emergence of new life. In each of the drawings, references to the body and the tree are veiled but still speak to the fact that living creatures share universal designs, in spite of adaptations and permutations. The artist cites as examples the ethereal lightness of the capillarity of a leaf and the veins of a hand as well as the verticality of the human spine and the trunk of a tree.
Accompanying the exhibition will be Las Delicias: The Drawings of William Spratling, Artist and Entrepreneur, a selection of silver design sketches curated by Newcomb College alumna and jewelry designer Mignon Faget. The show features works from the Latin American Library at Tulane University and underscores the entrepreneurial legacy of Spratling and the generations of artisans involved in the Taxco silver industry. Finally, Treasures of Darkness: Spanish Colonial Silver from the Middle American Research Institute, Tulane University presents a selection of mixed-media objects, both sacred and profane.
