Know More Art Lecture Series: The Rich Tradition of Mexican Folk Art
Saturdays, November 5 –19, 1 pm
Traditionally, folk art is made by people who have no formal art training and are working with their hands, simple tools, and materials that are available. Mexican Folk Art, rooted in everyday materials, was historically designed out of the desire to make fun and beautiful pieces out of utilitarian ware. In this fall lecture series, join us to learn more about the history and origins of Latin American folk art and view some excellent in-person examples in the exhibition Folk Treasures of Mexico: The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection from the San Antonio Museum of Art. Cost: $40 for complete series ($25 for members), $15 per individual lecture ($10 for members, $5 for students). Educator clock hours available. Preregistration is recommended. To learn more, click here.
