You will see works by internationally renowned artists such as Jenny Holtzer, Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Mitchell, Jim Hodges, Spencer Finch, Andy Warhol, Jennifer Steinkamp and dozens more.  Bid in the silent art auction on must have works from some of the best loved artists in Texas: Natasha Bowdoin, Candace Briceño, Erin Curtis, Anthony Garza, Roi James, Randy Muniz, Denise Prince, and Liz Ward.

Be intrigued by 13 strikingly dressed performers creating roving displays of human sculpture and tableaux in unexpected places.  A Body of Art will surround you.
