El Paso Museum of Art announces newest acquisitions

On Tuesday, El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) officials announced their newest acquisition of art, Seventy Six Point Cosmic Shield and The Beast by Beatriz Cortez.

EPMA members were invited to grow the EPMA collection at this year’s Members’ Choice, held on December 5, 2019. Members voted for the acquisition of these contemporary works of art.

“EPMA is thrilled to have acquired Beatriz Cortez’s exceptional sculptures. This is a significant addition to our core collection areas, reinforcing our mission to provide a stimulating and inspiring for all audiences,” said El Paso Museum of Art Interim Director Dr. Vladimir von Tsurikov.

“Additionally, the acquisition diversifies the collections through the celebration and representation of a female artist of color.”

Beatriz Cortez’s interactive sculptures challenge canonical ideas of modernity, revealing the indigenous roots of Western ideas. Seventy Six Point Cosmic Shield exposes the nomadic origins of housing structures associated with 1960s Utopic architecture.

The Beast, a modified pinball machine, traces a migrant’s journey and toys with the colonial spirit traditionally grounding many versions of the game.

Founded in 1959, the El Paso Museum of Art was born from a need to house a significant donation of European Baroque and Renaissance works to the City of El Paso by the Samuel Kress Foundation.

Over time, this seed collection grew to include over 7,000 works. The mission of the El Paso Museum of Art is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit works of art that support and illuminate the Museum’s permanent collection of American, European, and Mexican art.

The 2019 Members’ Choice acquisition is provided by the Robert U. and Mabel O. Lipscomb Foundation Endowment.

Video: M. Night Shyamalan Glass Review and Audience Reactions

M. Night Shyamalan completed his Eastrail trilogy with Glass. It is the sequel to both Unbreakable and Split. Glass ties the previous two movie together rather nicely.

In Unbreakable you are introduced to Elijah Price and David Dunn. Elijah Price has a rare disease causing his bones to be brittle and broken easily. David Dunn finds out he is super strong and impervious to a lot of injuries.

In Split we get to meet Kevin Wendell Crumb and his 20+ personalities. We find out that one of those personalities is the Beast who also has superhuman strength.

Glass stitches these two movies together. Glass should shut the door on the Eastrail trilogy, but it opens the door for another related movie. All I am gonna say is I am thinking about getting a clover tattoo.

We recommend watching Glass, especially if you’ve seen the previous two movies. If you’ve seen Glass let us know if you agree/disagree in the comments.

Video+Story: Glass by M. Night Shyamalan Preview

For me, Unbreakable was really the first superhero movie. Before the big box office Marvel and DC movies, we were introduced to David Dunn (Bruce Willis).

We find out that David Dunn is super strong and nearly indestructible after he survives a train wreck. We also meet Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson). His real name is Elijah Price, but got the nickname of Mr. Glass due to his fragility.

Mr. Glass is a big comic book aficionado. He figures if there is someone as fragile as him, it stands to reason there should be those on the other end of the spectrum as well. He has set out to find the super-human equivalent of himself. That is where David Dunn figures in the equation.

Then we have the movie Split with James Mcavoy playing a multiple personality person who goes by the name, the Horde. One of his personalities is a super human individual that has the most basic instincts. We have no idea that Split is connected to Unbreakable until the end scene that shows David Dunn in his characteristic rain coat.

Now we have Glass which is being billed as the third movie in the trilogy. From the trailers it appears that all three (Mr. Glass, Horde, and David Dunn) are all in the same asylum being treated for believing they are super heroes. Mr. Glass seems to be the evil mastermind using the Horde to carry out his demands. David Dunn is the quintessential good guy trying to stop them.

Unbreakable and Split were both really great movies in their own right. Knowing they are tied together in a trilogy elevates them in my mind. I am really hoping Glass puts a big exclamation point on the series.

Did you like Unbreakable and Split? Are you looking forward to Glass like we are? Let us know in the comments.
