Artist receives Rogers Family Tourism Award

Any local can recognize Rene Perez’ art work. Actually, it is kind of hard not to if you've lived in San Marcos for a while. His murals can be found all over town, both big and small, and always feature San Marcos scenes often with area wildlife given human characteristics. He has a mural at Rio Vista, the Hines Academic Center at Texas State, the tower at Wonder World, in front of the Marc, at a phone booth near La Fonda, the restroom at the Blue Dahlia Bistro and in front of the old theater on Guadalupe Street – just to name a few of the approximately 25 across town. Painting by painting, the artist has made San Marcos more beautiful, which attracts tourists and draws attention to area businesses. Because of his contributions to the community, Perez received the Rogers Family Tourism Award on May 21.
