Opening Reception for Memoria Presente: An Artistic Journey

March 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the opening reception for Memoria Presente: An Artistic Journey. Exhibition continues through August 13 in the Main Gallery

There is no better way to celebrate our 30th anniversary year than to present an exhibition of exceptional artists currently working in Chicago and vicinity. Since opening its doors in 1987, the Museum has showcased 220 exhibitions that exemplify a broad spectrum of artistic expressions from both sides of the Mexico-U.S. border. The contemporary artists now creating artwork across our Midwest city continue to accurately reflect the vibrance and diversity found within the Chicago-Mexican community. Their poetic and political expressions carry on an extensive history of contemplative work and civic dialog in North America. The Museum’s philosophy of a Mexican culture “sin fronteras” (without borders) promotes art as a bridge between communities, while art education expands minds and breaks down barriers, even as it preserves cultural heritage.
