Miradas Mexican Art from the Bank of America Collection

January 23 – August 30, 2009

This unique survey of one of the most extensive corporate collections in the U.S. takes a close look at paintings, prints, and photographs created over the past 80 years. The exhibition examines and celebrates work by artists on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, to reveal a variety of cultural aspects as they emerged in the years after the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920). Assembled here for the first time, visitors to the Miradas exhibition will have the opportunity to observe how many artists have been attracted to and inspired by Mexico’s ancient civilization and Modern theories alike.
