The McAllen Public Library will feature Brownsville artist Mark Clark's exhibition "MEXICA," a series of paintings of border culture and cities through an ancient cultural style.

An opening reception will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 10, in the Lobby Gallery in the library.

Clark, the curator for Galeria 409 in Brownsville, imagined a story of the gods being left behind in a retirement home, but then board a bus and head back home toward Mexico City. As they grow closer to home, the "superheroes" become stronger, younger and more powerful.

The 20 paintings he created inspired by his study of the Aztec culture and forgotten gods will be on display through Monday, Sept. 10.

WHEN: 2 p.m. Sunday, June 10

WHERE: McAllen Public Library, 4001 N. 23rd Street

COST: Free
