Summary

Now - September 5
Making its debut in Houston, Humanae explores human identity and race through 250 portraits from around the world. Brazilian artist Angélica Dass challenges visitors to rethink how they see race and think about skin color through a chromatic inventory of the different human skin tones that label human subjects with their corresponding color in the industrial palette, Pantone.  On display now to September 5, 2017 at The Health Museum.
