Mystic Lyon is thrilled to present "Lee's Congo Barre" by legendary Fifth Ward painter El Franco Lee II. This exhibition includes newly created personal works about Fifth Ward, Lee's late father Harris County Commissioner El Franco Lee and his grandmother's business “Lee's Congo Bar,” which is spelled Barre, like the cough syrup, for the show's title. This exhibition will include the paintings on view being updated every few weeks. The artwork will remain on view on the outside of the building from October 19 through February 29, 2020 with a reception on Saturday, October 19 from 6-9 p.m. During the run of the show, there will be several Happy Hours with the artist to see the work as it changes and to share related memories. More information about these events can be found on Mystic Lyon's social media accounts (mysticlyonhtx) and through their email distribution. [Organizer's description]
