The Codex Borgia

January 26 – February 23

UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum

The hand-painted reproduction on artisan-made bark paper presented at the Visual Arts Center is the result of a decades-long project by artist Richard Lee Gutherie with Gisele Diaz and Alan Rodgers. The original manuscript, inaccessible for many years until recent digitization, is known to most scholars and Mesoamerican enthusiasts through a 1993 Dover edition reproduction by the same team. These never before exhibited folios, all 76 pages of The Codex Borgia, debut at the Visual Art Center on Jan. 11, 2018 in conjunction with the UT Austin Mesoamerica Meetings conference.
