Myth & Magic: Oaxaca Past & Present

January 19 – May 19, 1996

The painting exhibition Myth & Magic was a compelling perspective of a rich heritage in the oral tradition and visual arts of the artists of Oaxaca. All of the artists included in this exhibition had indigenous roots and the majority grew up in rural villages where storytelling, both entertaining and educational, was an important part of every child’s upbringing.
