Bob Prager Selena portfolio

Identifier: Coll-165
Following the death of Tejano musical entertainer Selena Quintanilla Perez on March 31, 1995, several local artists commemorated her life and career by painting her likeness in murals on the walls of Corpus Christi businesses. Five of these important expressions of popular art were documented for Special Collections and Archives by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi photography student Bob Prager in 2001 through sixteen individual photographs that he took. He also photographed Selena's Boutique and Salon. Each image is an 8"x 10" black and white glossy gelatin print.
