Luis Sabor works on the finish for the mission wall
Community members are invited to join the Museum of the Coastal Bend for a behind-the-scenes look at construction of a museum exhibit. Luis Sabor, artist, is working in the Borchers Leon Exhibit Hall to finish walls evocative of Spanish missions built in Texas during the 18th century. His work and the construction process can be viewed during regular museum viewing hours, May 11-31. Attendees are invited to visit with the artist while they watch construction.


Luis Sabor is founder of Pure Mind Retreats located near San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. A native of Victoria, TX, Luis is an artist, musician, and traveler who works to promote sustainable systems of living by teaching permaculture, natural building and renewable energy.

Where Texas Ranching Began is a permanent exhibit that will share the history of the Coastal Bend’s ranching heritage. The exhibit will be constructed over the next two years in the museum's newly constructed Borchers Leon Exhibit Hall, and will open incrementally beginning with La Misión in October 2024.
