The National Museum of Mexican Art presents a new exhibition inspired by the novel The House on Mango Street by the accomplished Mexican-American author Sandra Cisneros. The contemporary works of art on display are based on some of the central topics brought to light in this consciousness-raising novel.
I am so proud to be part of this exhibit with such an incredibly talented group of artists from the U.S. and Mexico. The National Museum of Mexican Art kicks the event off on April 16, 2015 at 6:00 pm with musical vignettes and a performance of Reginald Robinson's musical compositions, which were inspired by Ms. Cisneros' novel, The House on Mango Street. Even more fabulous, since she is one of my favorite writers, is that Sandra Cisneros will read selections from this novel. For more information, please visit the National Museum of Mexican Art's website.
The exhibit opens to the public on April 17, 2015 and runs through August 23, 2015. The piece I will have on display is called I See Red and is shown below. It became part of the museum's permanent collection in July of 2014.
