ARTES DE MEXICO represented the rich variety of clay objects that continue to be skillfully created throughout Mexico – following a long tradition of making forms for use in daily life, for ceremonial purposes and for play.
The exhibition featured painted clay forms comprising a village scene and a bullfighting scene, including works by Candelario Medrano, and terra cotta works including figures by Teodora Blanco and a Tree of Life Candelabra.
