When it comes to celebrating and commenting on San Antonio’s present and recent past, artist and printmaker Michael Menchaca is one of our sharpest, most nuanced artistic minds. In this Contemporary Art Month exhibition, Menchaca, who has a special knack for combining the profound with the crude and often juxtaposes images from pop culture with traditional Mesoamerican iconography, offers up large- and small-scale works that speak to San Antonio’s cultural landscape. He references such recognizable landmarks and traditions as San Antonio College and Easter in Brackenridge Park.

Free, opening reception Wed March 21 6-8pm, on view 11am-4pm Tue-Sat through May 21, Ruiz-Healy Art, 201-A East Olmos Drive, (210) 804-2219, ruizhealyart.com.
