AUSTIN, Texas (June 21, 2010) — In recognition of the dual celebration of the bicentennial of Mexico's Independence and centenary of the Mexican Revolution – both occurring in 2010 – the Architecture and Planning Library at The University of Texas at Austin is hosting “Maya Architecture: Selections from the George F. and Geraldine Andrews Collection."
The exhibition highlights materials from an exhaustive and fully documented visual record of architecture of the lowland Maya area that is part of the Library's collection.
In the late 1950s, University of Oregon architecture professor George Andrews and his wife Geraldine visited the Yucatán for the first time, and for the next forty years they devoted their professional lives to the study and documentation of Maya architecture.
"The Rightness of Movement: Photographs of Deborah Hay by Phyllis Liedeker Finley" will be on display in the Fine Arts Library from March 26-April 8, and features 20 photographs taken of Hay in Austin over the course of fifteen years.
