Curator's Tour: Lure of Mexico

President & CEO and Chief Curator Charles Shepard will take you on a new gallery tour each month. From his specialized and personal point of view, Shepard offers a unique perspective as the visionary for all exhibitions at FWMoA. Tours are free with gallery admission.

Notably in the 1920s-1940s, numerous

American artists, writers, and musicians traveled to Mexico, attracted by the inexpensive lifestyle, politics, welcoming artistic community, and progressive government sponsored art programs. Artists were inspired by the murals of Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros as well as the powerful voice of printmakers from the Taller de Gráfica Popular. This exhibition will explore the influence of the Mexican Renaissance on American artists, reflected in their style, subject matter, and approach.
