NMU ART MUSEUM TO FEATURE CONTEMPORARY MEXICAN ART

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – The Northern Michigan University Art Museum in Lee Hall will feature contemporary art from Mexico in an exhibit that runs March 13-April 12.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The exhibit will feature the work of some of the artists currently showing in major galleries in Mexico City, the largest city in the world. Artworks will be from the Christian Keesee Collection, the Galeria Nina Menocal and the Galeria de Arte Mexicano.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  Mexico has a long history of creating vibrant visual art, from the muralists through the magical realism movement. Contemporary artists, such as those who will be featured in the NMU exhibit, combine these elements with a completely modern aesthetic to create their works.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The NMU Art Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 1-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. This exhibit is funded by the Jamrich Endowment for the Arts.
