Folk Art of Latin America

September 10, 2013–January 5, 2014

The Spurlock Museum joins the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) in celebrating its 50th anniversary. An integral part of this celebration is "Latin American Research: Past, Present, and Future." To complement this focus there will be an exhibition of Latin American folk art. Situated adjacent to the permanent South American Gallery, the exhibition will feature selected objects from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, countries where CLACS personnel have conducted and are conducting research. The exhibit is open during Museum hours: Tuesdays 12-5, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays 9-5, Saturdays 10-4, and Sundays 12-4. The Museum is closed on University holidays.
