José Cisneros: A Colorful World in Black and White

September 26, 2023 @ 8:00 am - January 6, 2024 @ 5:00 pm

From the Bryan Museum in Galveston, the Pearl’s Cole Gallery features José Cisneros: A Colorful
World in Black and White
 this fall.

Cisneros was born in Mexico in 1910, but his family lost their home during the Mexican
Revolution. He moved to the United States when he was 15, and his lifetime passion for
illustrating history left an indelible mark, winning him many awards. President George W. Bush
collected Cisnero’s work, and awarded him the National Humanities Medal in 2002. Cisneros
was also knighted by Pope John Paul II in 1990, and by King Juan Carlos of Spain in 1991.
With a focus on the rugged and iconic horsemen of Texas, Cisneros transports us to a bygone
era where the wild frontier was tamed by the fearless and skilled riders of the West. Through
his intricate artwork, you can almost hear the thundering hooves, feel the dust of the trail, and
sense the untamed spirit of the land.

The exhibition continues through January 6, 2024 and admission is free. Museum hours are
Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information visit
