National Museum of Mexican Art
Experience the dynamic and diverse Mexican heritage through a variety of exhibits. The permanent collection focuses on prints and drawings, popular art, photography, contemporary painting and sculpture and pre-Cuauhtemoc artifacts. Incredible works by well-known and emerging musicians, authors and artists showcase Latin America and its strong sense of community. The annual "Day of the Dead" exhibit begins in September and draws the largest crowds in the city for such an event.
I visited summer 2007 and was lucky enough to attend a symposium with key note speaker Elena Poniatowska. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The museum had some of the most impressive collections of Mexican Art, especially in their current exhibitions Nahui olin: A Woman Beyond her Time and Moderm Women Painters of Mexico. Even in Mexico it's hard to see these pieces of art and I came to see them in CHICAGO. Dozens of great restaurants were also located at walking distance such as Nuevo Leon. I loved it!
Admission is also FREE!
Mr. Tortelero has done a great job with this museum. I first visited this as a teenager in the late 80's and was underwhelmed. Let me tell you it has come a long way. Wish there were more places where Mexicans live in the US.
