The exhibit covers the first 200 years of Texas beginning in 1690. This exhibit tells the story of Tejanos through a collection of historical maps, documents, photos and original artwork. The Exhibit is comprised of eight handcrafted wooden freestanding panels. The “Tejano Historical Portrait Series” gives a face to Tejanos such as Don Jose Antonio Navarro, Lorenzo de Zavala and Toribio Losoya.
The exhibit provides the viewer with a synopsis of the role Tejanos played in the development of Texas. The exhibit helps to educate both students and the general public about their heritage. This provides them with a sense of pride in the knowledge that their ancestors played a very positive role in the development of Texas. We believe that this will strengthen our families and provide a better society.
