Congratulations to Mari Carmen Ramírez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art at the MFAH, who just received the Bard College Center for Curatorial Studies award for Curatorial excellence!! Last year this award went to the late Walter Hopps, and honors a curator who has made a lasting contribution to the trade. Mari Carmen’s shows on Gego and Avant-Garde art in Latin America have been big hits here in Houston. She rocks!!!
