On view September 22 - January 08, 2023

Exhibition Sponsored by Frost Bank

El Paso artist Tom Lea refuses easy characterization. A painter, muralist, author, illustrator, and war correspondent, his artistic style was as varied as his occupation. A true 20th century Renaissance man, Lea remains one of Texas' greatest artists and aesthetic innovators. By allowing his subject to dictate his approach, Lea forged one of the more unique careers of any modern artist.

 

Featuring examples of the artist's work in each of his chosen mediums, Unbridled: The Art of Tom Lea exposes visitors to a vision without limit.
