Enforced with contributions from Yale and Austin’s Harry Ransom Center, the retrospective showcases 140 works by Covarrubias, a celebrated caricaturist, writer and Vanity Fair contributor who’s been described as “Mexico’s Renaissance Man.” Besides tours of the exhibit, the event includes live jazz from David Villanueva, light bites from Paloma Blanca and “Vanity Affair” cocktails custom-crafted for the occasion by Blue Box bartender Nick Kenna.
