SELF HELP GRAPHICS & ART PRINTS
INCLUDED IN NUESTRAS HISTORIAS


Exhibition open year-round
Tuesday - Sunday, 10 am - 5 pm in the Permanent Collection Gallery


Nuestras Historias (Our Histories) highlights the Museum's Permanent Collection to showcase the dynamic and diverse stories of Mexican identity in North America. The exhibition presents cultural identity as something that continually evolves across time, regions, and communities, rather than as a static, unchanging entity, and features ancient Mesoamerican and colonial artifacts, modern Mexican art, folk art, and contemporary works from both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. The vast diversity of Mexican identities demonstrated in these works defies the notion of one linear history and a singular identity.


Curator: Cesáreo Moreno
