Mexican Revolution Focus of WTC Exhibit at ASU
The Mexican Revolution as reflected in photographs from Angelo State University's West Texas Collection (WTC) will be highlighted in display Sept. 12-28 in the Houston Harte University Center Art Gallery on the ASU campus.
"The People of the Revolution," featuring 44 photos from WTC's extensive holdings on the Mexican Revolution, will open with a 4-7 p.m. reception Tuesday, Sept. 12, in the University Center Art Gallery.
The exhibit, jointly sponsored by the WTC and the University Center Program Council Arts Committee, is open to the public during regular hours of the Houston Harte University Center.
The WTC owns and maintains an extensive collection of original photographs and postcards from the Revolutionary Era (1910-40). The images in the exhibit capture the spirit of the people of the Revolution and of life along the border during turbulent times. WTC materials on exhibit come from the Meador Collection, John Hardman of Ohio, Elmer Powell of Dallas and Joe R. Montelongo of El Paso.
