Del Rio - Sul Ross State Univ. Rio Grande College presents “Seeds of Identity/Semillas de Identidad,” a 20 photo exhibit that showcases native plant life in Mexico.

Thanks to the generosity of the Mexican Consulates in Eagle Pass and Del Rio, the display is open to the public at no charge. Each panel provides a short description in Spanish, English and French of how the fruit, vegetable, seed, or other part of the plant plays a part in world cuisine.

The exhibit is currently located at the Rio Grande College site in Del Rio at 205 Wildcat Dr. in the hallway of the academic building. It is available for viewing from 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Fridays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The photos will be on display in Del Rio through Fri., Apr. 27 and then will be at the Uvalde site Apr. 30-May 18, and finally on the campus in Eagle Pass from May 21-June 8.
