    El Paso Museum of Art Presents:
    Soundings: Benito Huerta, 1992- 2005

    For over thirty years of art-making, Benito Huerta developed the artistic philosophy that "Art is for everyone." This all-embracing attitude is the reason for Huerta's unique style that interweaves many modernist conventions with iconography drawn from a personal perspective on art, ethnicity and popular culture.

    Soundings demonstrate the breadth of Huerta's artistic investigations and work that includes overlapping of signs, symbols and words that attempt to dismantle and expose hierarchies of power and control. Huerta investigates the traditions of art and contemporary political issues by combining images from high and low culture in paintings, prints and drawings that may include chiles, maps, Taoist Yin-Yang symbols, cartoon characters, and/or crosses. Huerta's work is in several museum and corporate collections throughout the United States.

    Soundings is organized by the South Texas Institute for the Arts, Corpus Christi, Texas and will be on View February 25 - May 6, 2007 at the El Paso Museum of Art. The Museum is now open until 9:00 pm every Thursday evenings for your convenience. Please join us!
