Curator Arturo Infante Almeida hopes to capture the spirit of El Estado Grande with “Arte Chihuahua,” a group show representing a collaboration between UTSA President Ricardo Romo and Mexican Consul Enrique Cortazar. Opening Monday at the Institute of Texan Cultures, the exhibition highlights 23 nationally and internationally recognized artists living and working in Ciudad Juárez, a fast-growing city that’s been designated as both “the most violent zone in the world outside of declared war zones” and “The City of the Future.” Among the 37 photographs, paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media objects illustrating the Chihuahuan experience is Miguel Valverde’s neon luchador’s mask Hágase la lucha, a glowing highlight in a collection united by earthy palettes.  $6-$8; 9am-5pm Mon, Nov 12; Institute of Texan Cultures, 801 E César Chávez, (210) 458-2300, texancultures.com.
