Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art

The early birds will get the freebies whenAMuzeo in Anaheim opens its next show, a touring exhibition of 130 works by Mexican artists and Americans who worked in Mexico.

"Miradas: Ancient Roots in Modern and Contemporary Mexican Art from the Bank of America Collection" runs Sept. 10 to Jan. 9, 2011. The first three days, Sept. 10-12, will be free. After that it costs $13 for adults, $9 for children.

The survey show includes works by Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Gabriel Orozco, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Edward Weston and Javier Chavira, whose "El Guerrero (The Warrior)" is pictured. The curator is Cesareo Moreno, visual arts director of Chicago’s National Museum of Mexican Art, in collaboration with Bank of America’s curatorial staff. It was first seen last year at the Chicago museum, and will move on to the Museo Alameda in San Antonio after the Anaheim showing.

"Miradas" is one of more than a dozen exhibitions that Bank of America has culled from its collections and put on the road this year and next. "Transcending Vision: American Impressionism, 1870-1940" is scheduled to open May 25, 2011, at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, and "Portraits" is on tap starting in May, 2011, at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego.
