Artist Ana Serrano’s Salon of Beauty Exhibit at Rice University


Last month, I attended the Sally Ride Science Festival with my daughter at Rice University here in Houston. During a break in one of the sessions, I stumbled across an amazingly colorful and beautiful exhibit in the Rice Gallery. I only had a few minutes to explore it, but I was completely smitten with the bold work of Los Angeles artist, Ana Serrano, who recreates vibrant neighborhoods with cardboard and paint. I’m so glad to have found this short documentary by filmmakers Mark and Angela Walley on her work over on Junkculture, and after hearing more about the exhibit I’ll be making an extra trip back up to Rice so I can spend more time exploring Serrano’s work.
