For twenty-five years, the National Museum of Mexican Art has been the premiere exhibition space in the United States for Mexican and Mexican American art. It also serves as a cultural heart of Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. Join us for a guided tour of the museum's art, including textiles, paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, and ephemera. Following our visit to the museum, we will tour Pilsen before returning to the AHA meeting site.
