MEXICAN ART: NEW TRADITIONS

Jan 11, 2018

Experience an evening of exploration and magical expressions with local Chicano artist Jerry Vigil.


Vigil is known for his wood-carved Santos and Día de los Muertos sculptures, using natural materials such as wood and paper-mache that are common in traditional Mexican folk art as well as among contemporary artists, toy makers, and the creators of alebrijes. Explore the temporary exhibit El Alebrije: Una Historia En Comun (The Alebrije: A History in Common), on loan from El Museo de Arte Popular in Mexico City, and also enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum’s anthropology collections focused on Mexican art objects.
