Nacimientos: Traditional Nativity Scenes from Mexico
December 9, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Free Admission in December

Nacimientos: Traditional Nativity Scenes from Mexico presents the tradition of Nacimientos that survives in present-day Mexico as a visual amalgam of indigenous pre-Colombian and Spanish Colonial representations. The exhibition features a rich tradition of handmade Nacimientos from the Museum’s permanent collection and loans from Edwin R. Jordan; many of the nativity scenes in a variety of materials depict a reflection of Mexico’s landscape, such as cacti, turkeys, and market scenes.

Now more than ever, the U.S./Mexico Borderland has become the focus of an international audience. The icons and symbols of the region have been vital in providing a framework for ideals, emotions, philosophy, and patterns of behavior. The Icons and Symbols of the Borderland exhibition is an embodiment of the landscape and cultural legacy of this terrain in respect to a global community.
