The Shorthorn

“Life and Death: Luis Jiménez” features 35 pieces from the late Chicano artist. Containing sculptures, sketches, studies, drawings and prints, the exhibit is running until April 1. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

“I love [the exhibit], especially culturally, like being able to see into someone else’s culture,” said theater senior Vanessa Hancock. “I think it’s beautiful, and just like the different mediums, it’s really nice to see.”

“Life and Death” shares the gallery with “Bridges III,” which is the third installation of a collaboration with the Art Bridges Foundation. Bridges features works by multiple artists facing each other across walls, allowing them to have a dialogue, according to a press release.
