> DESCRIPTION

Mexican folk art, craft, and popular culture are a familiar visual vocabulary, and the artists in this exhibition reclaim traditional symbols and artisanal techniques to advance a deeper understanding of Mexican culture, identity, and history. This exhibition was initially organized by Kristen Evangelista for the San Jose Museum of Art and modified for William Paterson University.
