Happy Late Valentine’s Day to all our supporters! We hope you enjoyed this month of love. We’ve continued work on our documentary following Chuck’s life and work and we wanted to share an update before spring.

The McNay Sets Date for “Chuck Ramirez: All This and Heaven Too”
In fall 2017 the McNay presents Chuck Ramirez: All This and Heaven Too, the first significant survey of work by San Antonio artist Chuck Ramirez (1962-2010). The exhibition is organized by the McNay’s Chief Curator/Curator of Contemporary Art René Paul Barilleaux and includes photographs from approximately 20 series and recreates the artist’s early exhibition installations, reimagining his youthful efforts. Photographs are selected from museum collections, private collections, and the Estate of Chuck Ramirez.

The exhibition will run from September 14, 2017 to January 14, 2018. Learn more at McNayArt.org

Production Schedule for “Tia Chuck” Documentary
As mentioned in our last production update, we have planned to complete Chuck’s film during the run of “Chuck Ramirez: All This and Heaven Too”. We believe the exhibition at the McNay will be wonderful context for a screening of our documentary. Also, fall will be an ideal time to submit to film festivals and to create a film screening schedule. Over the next several months we will continue production on this documentary and will be posting updates here. All Screening Dates TBA.

Thanks as always for your support!

Best,
