Welcome to the National Museum of Mexican Art’s new website!
Did you ever wonder what goes on beyond those “Staff Only” signs? This living exhibit will provide a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of what our Museum’s Permanent Collection professional staff does and why we wear those white gloves. Since our earliest accession in 1987, which is a serigraph by Ester Hernández, the NMMA’s Permanent Collection has grown to over 10,000 unique artistic creations, some with 100s of individual components. The collection categories now include: Arte Popular (Folk Art), Carlos Cortez Archives, Drawings, Ephemera / Memorabilia, Installations, Paintings / Mixed Media, Photography, Posters, Pre-Cuauhtémoc Artifacts, Prints, Sculpture, Textiles / Outfits and, most recently Digital Media.
