The Wittliff Collections opened two new exhibitions this week at the Alkek Library, totaling three free shows on view in conjunction with their 25th Anniversary.
On SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, the public is invited to an OPEN HOUSE celebrating the Wittliff’s anniversary exhibitions. Curators and staff will be on hand to answer questions about The Edge of Time: Photographs of Mexico by Mariana Yampolsky, Illuminating Texas: 25 Lone Star Moments, and The Dazzling Instant photographic show. Authors and photographers whose works are held at the Wittliff will be invited, and refreshments—including anniversary cake—will be served.
