Additionally in the Mezzanine display case there are six plates from 450 Años de Lucha: Homenaje al Pueblo Mexicano (1960) (450 Years of Struggle: Homage to the Mexican People ) published by the Taller de Gráfica Popular. The plates depict important moments and figures in Mexico’s history, such as Cuauhtémoc and Benito Juarez.  

The new exhibitions will be on view until the end of the Fall semester.
