In October 2004, the Ransom Center will open Miguel Covarrubias: A Certain Clairvoyance, a commemorative exhibition recognizing the achievements of Mexican artist Miguel Covarrubias. Drawn from the Ransom Center's Nickolas Muray Collection of Mexican Art, the exhibit will focus on the artist's caricature drawings, paintings, and books. In conjunction with the exhibition, a book for the Imprint Series entitled The Covarrubias Circle: Nickolas Muray's Collection of Mexican Art will be published. The generosity of Rick Hardin and Jack & Janet Roberts provided the funding to publish the book, while the Texas Commission on the Arts will support the authors' honoraria.
