Join us for a virtual visit to the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, showcasing the dynamic and diverse stories of Mexican identity in North America.
Nuestras Historias (Our Histories) highlights the Museum’s Permanent Collection to showcase the dynamic and diverse stories of Mexican identity in North America.
The exhibition presents cultural identity as something that continually evolves across time, regions, and communities, rather than as a static, unchanging entity, and features ancient Mesoamerican and colonial artifacts, modern Mexican art, folk art, and contemporary works from both sides of the U.S.–Mexican border.
The vast diversity of Mexican identities demonstrated in these works defies the notion of one linear history and a singular identity.
About the National Museum of Mexican Art:
Preserving Mexican culture through exhibitions, arts education and events, the National Museum of Mexican Art is located in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, in the heart of the city’s Mexican community. NMMA’s 11,000-piece permanent collection showcases 3,000 years of creativity from both sides of the border, connecting museum visitors to the diversity of Mexican culture.
