DESCRIPTION

The National Museum of Mexican Art is the largest Latino cultural organization in the country and the only Latino museum accredited by the American Association of Museums.  For more than two decades, the Museum has presented a vast range of educational exhibitions that have continued to offer a vibrant and comprehensive picture of Mexico's art and history, and of Mexican communities in the U.S. Our understanding that Mexican culture is “sin fronteras” (without borders) guides our exhibition schedule and permits us to display artistic expressions from both sides of the border. From ancient Mesoamerican civilizations to contemporary artistic movements, the Visual Arts Department has a longstanding history of producing original exhibitions with first-voice scholarship. 15 of the exhibitions organized by the Museum have traveled across the U.S. and Mexico to other museums. All of the exhibitions we have presented over the years have interpreted our history and culture in order to preserve the knowledge and stimulate appreciation of the Mexican culture.
