TAM Docents: Book Suggestions for Mexican Folk Art

Hello Docents-

Stephanie has provided me with a list of possible books to learn more about Mexican Folk Art for the upcoming exhibition Folk Treasures of Mexico: The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection From the San Antonio Museum of Art. I made notes on the highlighted selections so that you will know what will be made available. I also purchased a book, The Crafts of Mexico for the ARC that looks like it will be useful. A copy of the exhibition catalog will be available at the docent desk by next week as it shipped today.


Along the same lines, I will also have a copy of the Hide/Seek catalog at the docent desk for you to start reading. I’d hoped to be able to make a copy of the essay but the book would require a full copying to get you everything so I figured I’d just make it available instead! It is a very interesting read.


Thank you for all that you do for Tacoma Art Museum!
