National Museum of Mexican Art

The National Museum of Mexican Art, which opened to the public in 1987, is dedicated to exhibiting and interpreting art by Mexican and Mexican American artists. Its artist and exhibition files document its activities and associated artists; the Carlos Cortéz archive complements the museum's art holdings. The records in this web resource were compiled from in-person examination of materials and from information supplied by the curator.
