On behalf of the Mexic-Arte Museum Board of Directors and Staff Members, we whole-heartedly thank all our generous sponsors that supported the Museum during this past year of the pandemic. As we reflect on the past twelve months, it seems like it began yesterday. The year was filled with many emotions – starting with the fear of not understanding what Covid was, what a pandemic meant to us personally, and to the organization. As soon as we covered all the art and windows, turned all the lights off, locked the door and went home, our fears quickly transformed into determination.
We welcome everyone to Mexic-Arte Museum as all museums, theaters and businesses begin to open up after a difficult year. Visit the Museum to view the exhibition, Mexico, the Border and Beyond and see the online exhibit, Life and Experiences in the U.S./Mexico Borderlands. In addition, be sure to view the Museum’s online video lecture series featuring humanities scholars in conjunction with the exhibition. As part of exhibition programming, the Museum’s Education Associates developed interactive, virtual lesson plans; one is included in this newsletter for families to create at home.
