Texas Contemporary Art Fair pulls at the eye strings of art aficionados with more than 50 exhibiting galleries showcasing historically significant and contemporary art from around the world. Guests can peruse art-speckled spaces to join fellow enthusiasts in discussions about the cultural relevance of Make Tacos Not War by Alejandro Diaz or compete in a staring contest with Woodrow Wilson Crossing the Delaware with Seascouts by John Wesley. Gray matter is also stimulated by a well-heeled selection of discussions with the likes of Mexico City–based artist Edgar Orlaineta and sculpture sage Paul Vllinski.
