Meet the Artist Behind the Tejano Monument Tonight
The Tejano Monument will be unveiled tomorrow on the south lawn of the Texas Capitol.
Over a decade in the making, the work is a monument honoring the contributions of Texas’ early Spanish-Mexican settlers and their descendants. The work was developed by Laredo artist Armando Hinojosa. He was commissioned in 2001 to create the multi-statue piece.
The public is invited to a “Meet the Artist” reception honoring Hinojosa tonight, at the Capitol Extension's Legislative Conference Center, Room E2.002A, at 6 p.m. An event in conjunction with the unveiling, the Nosotros Los Tejanos parade, is occurring this Saturday as well.
