David Freeman plans to create a unique opening reception with an atmosphere inspired by the day-to-day activities experienced on an urban Mexican Plaza. Guests will be treated to the beverages and tasty treats sold from pushcarts by street vendors. They will be able to get a shoe shine and listen to the traditional music of roving mariachis.The Unstoppable Imagination of Information for Change theme of Freeman's exhibition allows the viewer to contrast the daily images encountered in south Texas and north Mexico with the disinformation prone media meglamania of 21st century satellite reception and towering transmitter stations aimed to manipulate our very thoughts and opinions. The artist makes a comment and you will enjoy visiting this dynamic and focused artist and discuss his theme.
