A new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) took the visitor deep into the spiritual world of the ancient Americas, where animal deities ruled the heavens, Earth and underworld. “Fangs, Feathers and Fins: Sacred Creatures in Ancient American Art” was curated by Chelsea Dacus, an assistant curator at the MFAH who is currently in her first year of pursuing a Ph.D. in art history at Rice.  She is part of the first cohort of Rice's PhD for Museum Professionals.  See more here.
