This exhibition explores an unprecedented period of cultural and intellectual exchange between Mexico and the U.S. in the 1930s and 1940s through 30 prints and drawings by artists such as Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Elizabeth Catlett. Often through bold and expressive figurative imagery, the featured prints underscore the political, social, and cultural shifts taking place in the years following the Mexican Revolution.

This exhibition is curated by Senior Curator of Prints, Drawings & Photographs Rena Hoisington.
