McNay showcases late S.A. artist Chuck Ramirez's work

Chuck Ramirez's exhibit at the McNay Art Museum honors his legacy and work nearly eight years after his death.

SAN ANTONIO - A new exhibit at the McNay Art Museum is displaying the work of late San Antonio artist Chuck Ramirez. He passed away after a bicycle accident in 2010.

Guests can view Ramirez's work, including photography, sculptures and video, in the exhibit called Chuck Ramirez: All this and Heaven Too.

"This exhibition is the first opportunity that the McNay has had to promote the work of an artist from our own community," Rene Barilleaux, McNay head of curatorial affairs, said.

Ramirez drew on his San Antonio upbringing in his work.

"He was really interested in the merging of fine art with popular culture. Included in the exhibition are decorative Christmas trees that he made for his friend Linda Pace," Barilleaux said.

The exhibit started Thursday and runs through Jan. 14.
