The Wittliff Gallery of Southwestern & Mexican Photography at Texas State University-San Marcos is a creative center and archives devoted to the photographic cultures of Mexico and the Southwestern United States. The Gallery’s mission is to bring together a comprehensive range of work from the region that represents the history of photography from the 19th century to the present day, with an emphasis on contemporary imagery.
Serving students, faculty, visiting scholars, and the community, the Gallery reveals the importance of photography as a document of social realities and a testimony of personal visions. This goal is carried out by collecting and preserving photographic images, designing and promoting exhibitions from the collections, publishing the Wittliff Gallery book series with the University of Texas Press, maintaining an active world wide web site, hosting traveling exhibits, and supporting research in the gallery’s own photographic holdings and in their collection of books, manuscripts, serial publications, and ephemera related to the photographic arts.
Gallery Location: Located on the 7th floor of the Albert B. Alkek Library on the campus of Texas State University-San Marcos. San Marcos is located between Austin and San Antonio along the IH 35 corridor.
