This exhibition, complimenting the exhibition Honor and Glory, features the Galveston Arches, seven high fantasy arches constructed for the Mardi Gras in Galveston in 1986. A new arch to be shown first in Galveston this year will be re-erected for the exhibition. Visitors enter the exhibitions through a ceremonial arch constructed for the occasion.
