"Carlos Mérida: Selections From the Permanent Collection"

Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays, Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., San Antonio Museum of Art, 200 W. Jones, $5- $10, samuseum.org

Occasionally, a museum dusts off some pieces from its permanent collection and brings them out of the archives. Such is the case with SAMA’s vibrant new Carlos Mérida exhibit, which runs through January. In the collection of nearly 30 works, folks can get to know the Guatemalan-born Mérida, who, despite his pioneering works — which first explored the symbol-rich history of Mayan culture and later embraced surrealism and geometric abstractionism — remains a lesser-known master than his friend and contemporary Diego Rivera.
