Finding the Art Legacy Gallery in San Antonio is a challenge. Located at 18503 Sigma, it’s in the lobby of a strip mall with no signage declaring its existence.

But upon entering, you’re greeted by a Warhol-inspired, pop-art portrait of an older man sticking out his tongue. What’s most striking is his bright pink tongue and blue shirt. Everything else is gray. That’s famed author Gabriel García Márquez.

The 50th anniversary of the opening of HemisFair is Friday, and the Institute of Texan Cultures has invited the public for a weekend full of events to mark the occasion.
