I just got an email about a lecture about artist Martin Ramirez to be held tomorrow (Wednesday Oct 29) at the Ruben Center gallery at UTEP. Martin Ramirez, who died in 1963, has become a rediscovered art sensation thanks in part to a show last year at the American Folk Art Museum. His considered to be a blend of traditional Mexican and outsider art.
The lecture is to be given by Victor Espinosa of Northwestern University. The free lecture will be held at 6 pm. Coincidentally there is a large article about Ramirez in the current Artinfo.-dsokolec
