linoleum prints narrating stories of the Texas-Mexico border. Having attended high school in Laredo, Mora’s adept social awareness of the blending of border  cultures became inspiration for his print work. Similar to the process of linoleum printing, cultural variances are etched and instilled in the community surrounding the border. Incorporating cultural iconography specific to the area and a dash of dark humor, Mora’s etched scenes detail the lives, faith, and values of residents on both sides of the border. $15-$20, June 8-August 13, 10am-9pm Thu, 10am-4pm Fri, 10am-5pm Sat, noon-5pm Sun, 10am-4pm Tue, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org.
