Support the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art
To assist in the fundraising, International Bank of Commerce is sponsoring an art show by sculpture, Victor Gutiérrez, Thursday, May 25th at the Bank's main branch 1600 FM 802. Doors will open at 6:00 for the wine & cheese ($25 per person) with the artwork of Sculpture Victor Gutiérrez on display and for sale. The artist Gutierrez, currently touring in Europe is the creator of the renowned " El Angel in Mexico City."
He will be in Brownsville for the exhibit and has donated a bronze to be raffled at the event. Raffle tickets are $100 each. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art Building Fund.
On June 2, 2006, at the current Brownsville Museum of Fine Art photography by Dr. Jose Castañeda will be exhibited. "The COLORS of Brownsville" is a collection of forty photographs of botanicals from the lawns in and around Brownsville. Again, all proceeds will benefit the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art Building Fund.
"We are very honored at the commitment of Dr. Jose Castaneda and others" said Carol DeMoss, Executive Director with the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art. "This is several years of outstanding work Dr. Castañeda has donated. Many times, Dr. Castaneda would go to a home as many as twenty times to meet owners and ask permission to photograph a plant or flower. His images are exquisite."
