"Floating Life: Mississippi River Drawings by Liz Ward"


May 19, 2019 to Aug 25, 2019

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Organized by the Tyler Museum of Art, “Floating Life” is the first large-scale museum exhibition of Mississippi River works by San Antonio artist Liz Ward. The show is open to the public May 19-August 25 in the Museum’s North Gallery.

The exhibition spotlights pieces from two recent bodies of work: Ghosts of the Old Mississippi and Veritas Caput. The works from Ghosts of the Old Mississippi are based on geological maps of the river’s ancient courses and inspired by the artist’s childhood memories from South Louisiana. Pieces from Veritas Caput focus on the search for the source of the river by various explorers.

Support for “Floating Life” is provided by Collectors’ Circle-Gold Sponsors Betty & Dick Summers, with special thanks to Talley Dunn Gallery and Moody Gallery.
