What happens when ancient ideas meet modern life? The diversity that defines Houston has produced devotional art, interpreted by contemporary artists, that reflects the myriad cultures and peoples who live here. From Rothko’s post-modernist critique to Kermit Oliver’s commentary on the resurrection, to the multiple roles the Virgin of Guadalupe plays in our city, experts in the arts, religion, and cultural studies will guide your journey. Guadalupanos and Matachines dancers preserve unique cultural traditions in a performance that brings the tour to a festive close.
