The Visual and Dramatic Arts department at Rice University is pleased to host Mexico City artist Agustín Estrada. The opening reception will be on Tuesday, September 18 at 6pm, in the Main Gallery of the Rice Media Center. The exhibition is titled, “Shizen: On the Art of Looking at Nature”. The artist explains, “the first word is the Japanese word for Nature, because it is not only about gardens but more about two Japanese phenomena related with the Art of looking at Nature with two particular concepts called ‘Hanami’ and ‘Momiji’ the first one related to flowers blooming in the early spring and the second one with the changing color of the leaves in autumn. Both clearly identified in Japanese culture.”   Agustín has worked with photography and printing for over 40 years with the majority of his publications focusing on various cultures. The Visual and Dramatic Arts department will have over 30 prints on view in the Main Gallery space of the Rice Media Center located at Entrance #8 (via University Blvd and Stockton Drive) on Rice University campus.
