About The Artist:

Widely noted throughout the Texas art community and beyond, Benito Huerta has a long and varied career exhibiting work around the state and across the country. Regionally, his work has appeared in dozens of one-person and group shows, including venues in Arlington, Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Galveston, Houston, and San Antonio, among others. In 2005, the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi organized a thirteen-year survey and catalogue of his work titled Soundings: Benito Huerta, 1992-2005. The show traveled to the El Paso Museum of Art in 2007. Nationally, Huerta has shown work in Chicago (at the National Museum of Mexican Art); Denver; Kansas City, Missouri; Little Rock; Philadelphia; San Francisco; Washington, D.C.; and New York City; among many others. In 1994, the University Museum at Arizona State University in Tempe mounted Benito Huerta: Preserve, Negate, Transcend, a twelve-year survey of his work. Huerta's art has been exhibited internationally as well, in Mexico, Germany, Japan, and Paraguay.

Huerta takes a special interest in his community, and has participated in various public art projects. This past spring, he brought to fruition Fort Worth's Marine Creek Park Corridor Master Plan. From 2004 to 2008, he served as lead artist of the Fort Worth Parks Enhancement Project, and from 2002 to 2007, he designed Snake Path, an 8' x 800' walkway at the Mexican-American Cultural Center in Austin. From 2002 to 2005, Huerta was commissioned to design Wings, two skylink platforms at DFW Airport's International Terminal. In addition to these, in 2001, he was part of a contingent of artists from Arlington and its German sister city, Bad Königshofen, who created international peace monuments in both Gene Allen Park and Germany.

Huerta serves as professor of art at the University of Texas at Arlington, where he is also the director and curator of The Gallery at UTA. He was co-founder, executive director, and now board director emeritus of the Texas-based contemporary art journal ArtLies. He has sat on the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, the Visual Arts Panel of the Texas Commission on the Arts, the Exhibition Advisory Committee of the College Art Association in New York, and has served on the boards of the Arlington Museum of Art, the Dallas Visual Art Center, and Diverse Works in Houston, among others.
Huerta has won various awards, including the 2008 Maestro Tejano Award from the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas and the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art's 2002 Artist Legend of the Year Award. His work can be found in museum collections nationwide, at the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, Menil Collection, and Museum of Fine Arts in Houston; the DePaul University Museum in Chicago; the El Paso Museum of Art; and the Library of Congress. Corporate collections featuring Huerta's work include American Airlines, AT&T, IBM, and Microsoft, to name a few.
