Thank you for your participation!
The Mexican Museum is welcoming entries from emerging and mid-career artists to submit art that reflects on the identities of the communities that are aligned with the museum’s mission, an effort to explore visual representations of the complexity and richness of the art and the history of the Latino, Chicano, Mexican American and Mexican communities in the Bay Area.
In engaging the local community and showcasing the talent of local artists, The Mexican Museum will showcase the work of 3 local artists, whose work reflects on culture and identity from a visual perspective, through an online exhibition on the museum’s website. The selection of the artists will be done by a jury and curatorial committee comprised of established Bay Area artists and honorary members. Furthermore, an artwork from each artist will be incorporated with all museum merchandise as part of the museum’s exposure and marketing initiatives to a broader audience, from which the artist receives a royalty.
This initiative is part of the museum’s campaign to raise funds for community programs and cultural awareness and to support local artists to gain presence and representation within the Bay Area art scene and the world. We wish to continue with the artistic dialogue that the museum has inherited since its birth in 1975. We also encourage you to visit our website to familiarize yourself with The Mexican Museum’s history, as well as with its exhibitions and educational programs.
