> DESCRIPTION

In the 1920s, many people in Mexico embraced their indigenous roots in an era of cultural revolution. The visual and performing arts and the archaeological discoveries of the period inspired silver designers to produce jewelry and objects that were emblematic of a new Mexico. Dr. Penny Morrill, professor of art history, discusses how each of these handwrought silver objects has an intriguing story to tell, which usually involves larger-than-life personalities and boldly imaginative and creative spirits. Dr. Morrill has written numerous books and articles on modern Mexican silver.
