Celebrating Culture Through Art

The Wichita Falls Museum of Art at Midwestern State University has a special exhibit on display in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

More than 70 pieces of artist Kathy Sosa's work take up four galleries at the museum. The exhibit consists of portraits of Latina women in traditional dress.

"There are paintings, collages, and prints," said Curator of Collections and Exhibitions Danny Bills. "There's also the actual blouses that are inspiration for this, so people can see the work and the items that are in the work."

Sosa herself is not Hispanic, but the inspiration from the culture is clear in the exhibit.

"She's drawing directly from cultural influences and presenting them in works where people can see it," said Bills. "Tying the objects in with the culture, in with the people, and then presenting it in a visual format."

The exhibit is open through October 20th.
