Cortez will be back again at the Weslaco Museum on Friday, May 17, 2013 for an artist talk, where he will give the audience an insight into his work, as well as provide a platform for discussion. The artist talk and discussion will take place from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.This event is free and the public is cordially invited.
