Hispanic Heritage Month at UHCL: Mexican WWII virtual exhibition

The Latinx and Latin American Studies students and faculty at University of Houston-Clear Lake are contributing to an online exhibition featuring Mexican World War II prints. The exhibit will soon be available online at the UHCL Art Gallery to offer your reactions to the art. Your responses will become part of a campuswide exhibition, reproduced alongside the prints and posted around the UHCL campus as well as at UHCL Pearland and UHCL Texas Medical Center. After contributing, you’re invited to join others via Zoom on Oct. 5 at 5 p.m. for a chat about the prints. Register for the Mexican WWII virtual exhibition online.
