The Huxleys, who are performing at this year’s Fusebox Festival

1. Fusebox Festival
Various Venues (Austin)
April 7 – 14, 2024

From Fusebox Festival:

“Twenty years ago, a group of Austin-based artists launched the first ever Fusebox Festival. 608 years earlier (in the year 1397), Central Texas experienced a total eclipse of the sun and has not experienced one since. This April represents the first time ever these two phenomena are happening at the same time. We hope you can join us for this rare occasion.”

From Ruby City:

“Ruby City will present a solo exhibition devoted to the work of Celia Álvarez Muñoz, a conceptual, multi-media artist known for her diverse work focused on family stories, her bi-cultural background and upbringing on the Texas/Mexico border. In her Studio exhibition at Ruby City, Los Brillantes, Muñoz combines distinct bodies of work to create an installation that scales between the specificity of the city of San Antonio and its Latinx artists to the infinitude of the cosmos. The exhibition is comprised of a suite of 18 photographic portraits of artists from San Antonio, part of her 2002 series, Semejantes Personajes/Significant Personages, recently acquired by Linda Pace Foundation, Ruby City.”

Much Thanks, Glasstire!
So appreciate your highlighting “Los Brillantes” @ Ruby City’s Chris Park Studio. It’s a lovely affirmation of. The acquisition of photographs in exhibit with credit to Elyse Gonzales and Patricia Ruiz-Healy, not withstanding, the San Antonio artists who are the exhibit’s subjects!
