July 7….Museum of Texas Tech presents: Fresco y Dicho: Frederico
M. Vigil - The Museum of Texas Tech University is pleased
to present Fresco y Dicho: Frederico M. Vigil, a contemporary New
Mexican master. Frederico Vigil creates frescos, rather buon frescos
(true frescos), paintings in which ground pigments are applied to
wet plaster. The paintings and the wall or ceiling become one as
the pigments seep into the wet plaster and bind with it. This classic
and ancient mural technique, used by such accomplished artists as
Michelangelo and Diego Rivera, is well suited for painting large
images that permanently decorate the walls of buildings. Vigil worked
for over nine years on these paintings that depict Hispanic culture
from prehistory to the present. The frescos, which cover more that
4,000 square feet, opened to the public in 2010. Close inspection
of these drawings will reward each viewer with abundant information
about how the artist used them to guide the creation of his frescos.
