Statement of Solidarity

We offer you this statement developed by NMMA staff. It reflects our organization's collective values since the Museum opened its doors.

The National Museum of Mexican Art has worked tirelessly for 30 years to affirm the deep artistic and cultural contributions of Mexicans on both sides of the border. Now, more than ever, our museum stands in solidarity with all communities targeted by hateful rhetoric and racist attacks. Now, mas que nunca, we stand with the Black community.

We open our doors every day to welcome every single visitor, and encourage our diverse public – teachers, artists, students and families – to engage with art in ways large and small. We reaffirm our commitment to community work and our belief in the museum as a safe space for all. Art has the wonderful capacity to bring us together, to create hope, and to fortify us for the hard work of resisting hatred. We value the Mexican experience and expect that while you are here as a visitor you are mindful and respectful of our artwork, our guests, and our staff. We appreciate your visit, and we hope that it inspires learning, exploring, and meaningfully engaging with our community and our culture.
