Joe Peña, assistant professor of painting at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, will display works from his Mexican food paintings and food trucks. His second series began with a late-night visit to pick up a couple of tacos from a truck he frequented.
Peña assisted in the development of a contemporary art gallery titled MB Modern in New York City, which operated for six years before relocating to Houston. He was appointed as public arts manager for the city of Corpus Christi, where he served for a year and a half before assuming the role of gallery director for Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi for three years.
