This summer, come to The Bryan Museum and EXPLORE the Spanish Colonial world, DISCOVER Catholic heritage, and CONNECT with powerful images of devotion.This new special exhibit features never-before-seen selections from The Bryan Museum's own Spanish Colonial religious art collection. Catholicism was an important tool used by the Spanish to colonize and conquer an empire in the New World. Without a common language, Spanish priests and missionaries relied on artwork and images to convert indigenous populations. The exhibit includes some of the best fine art in the world but also provocative images by amateur artists and Catholic devotees.
