Fanning the Flame : The Art of Carlos Cortéz from The Museum’s Permanent Collection
May 30 – August 31, 1997 Main Gallery
This was the first major retrospective exhibition of one of our community’s greatest artists, activists and poets. The work on display was drawn primarily from the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum’s permanent collection, and featured paintings, prints and drawings that reflected almost fifty years of Carlos Cortéz’ artistic achievement. Themes found in this work include his long- standing commitment to workers in the U.S., promotion of human rights struggles and the illustration of Mexican cultural traditions.
