San Antonio Museum of Art
August 24 - November 11, 2018
From the museum: "Motivated by personal family history and the urge to preserve memories, Marilyn Lanfear’s body of work is a testament to her rich Texas heritage and her industrious spirit. While her family’s narratives are the point of departure, Lanfear’s symbolic use of imagery and materials calls forth universal themes—such as identity, the importance of place, and memory—which resonate with all of us."
