This exhibition shows workarts expressing the political ideas of mexican artists made during the time period from1921 to 1958. more »
Small but great pieces and well designed spaces for viewing. I would have loved to have seen more protest/political art since there is so much that is told mostly in art due to problems in journalism. Mostly either abstract or early modern.
FREE ON SUNDAYS! This Museum is located in a big, beautiful park, and there are many outdoor sculptures as well as incredible exhibitions inside. There are guided tours available during the week, and they’re closed on Mondays.
