Join us for a Community Opening in celebration of the exhibition Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art on June 19th. Jacksonville musician Goliath Flores graces us with his vocal talent and musical accompaniment, art-making for all ages can be enjoyed in the studios, and TreeCup café will be open and serving light meals and refreshments. Don’t forget to pick up a Miradas guide which also contains a section for family activities in the gallery.

Want to know more about Mexico and its rich history? There is a selection of books to read or browse in the gallery for children and adults.

This exhibit features paintings, prints and photographs spanning from the 1920s to the first decade of the 21st century. Enjoy the expressive works from such artists as Rufino Tamayo, Judithe Hernandez, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera. This beautifully colorful collection addresses such themes as social and political reform, indigenous pride and culture, and the Mexican Revolution, and the artists’ strong visual opinions based on these topics.
