La Reina de Las Americas Works of Art from the Museum of the Basilica de Guadalupe

 

La Reina de Las Americas Works of Art from the Museum of the Basilica de Guadalupe, January 10 – May 11, 1997

Summary: This was the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum’s tenth anniversary special exhibition. As a community based institution with a strong commitment to our community, there could not be a more appropriate exhibition to present for all the support we had received those first ten years. The display of over eighty works of art from the 17th to the 20th century reflected the aesthetics and spiritual blending of Spanish Catholicism and Indigenous Mexican cultures. These magnificent paintings, sculptures, textiles and prints were works of art guided by faith and inspiration that illuminate the unique and powerful devotion to Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe.
