In Mexico, two civilizations have lived and fought across the land and within the soul of every individual. One civilization is native to the Americas. The other originated in Europe, but now is so firmly ensconced that it has become an elemental part of the Mexican character.
“Mexico” presents 3,000 years of Mexican culture and history. Photographs highlight stone sculptures from prehistoric times, liturgical artifacts from Colonial days, 19th-century portraits and landscapes and works on canvas and paper by 20th-century muralists. The exhibition serves to enhance appreciation of the richness and complexity of Mexico and its people.
