Return from Texas!
The Art Museum of South Texas. It has a stunning view overlooking Corpus Christi Bay and an impressive collection of artwork. I especially liked the artwork of Ricardo Ruiz (above) who had a mural in the local library. We also stopped in at the Art Center of Corpus Christi, which is right down the street, and admired several exhibitions by members of the center. I was impressed by the quality of art by the various members of this active group and their hospitality. The center is very active in promoting members' work, conducting workshops and classes and providing community outreach for artists and the community. Such a community resource is invaluable and I'm somewhat jealous that we don't have anything comparable here in Orlando.
