Public Print Viewing: Mexico City Then and Now (Part 2)

A 20th Century Comparative Look

Culver Center of the Arts

April 5, 2018

Free Public Print Viewing

Thursday, April 5, 2018, 6pm - 8pm

Print viewing is free to the public during First Thursday Art Walk

Stop by the Culver Center of the Arts on Thursday, April 5 for a public print viewing featuring selection of images from the Keystone-Mast Collection of Mexico City in the early 1930s. The Keystone-Mast Collection is a virtually encyclopedic visual document of the world between the late-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, as photographed stereoscopically (three-dimensionally). Selections for this print viewing will focus on the complex and vibrant culture scenes in Mexico City. Gluck fellow, Angela Lessing will be present to discuss the historical sites as captured in stereograph format and how they appear in comparison today. 

The print viewing will be situated in the Culver Center atrium. No reservations necessary. Museum guests can drop by anytime between 6-8 PM during the evening's Art Walk event to view the prints.

Public Print viewing of Mexico City Then and Now (Part 2): A 20th Century Comparative Look is supported by the Gluck Fellows Program of the Arts at UC Riverside. The Gluck Fellows Program is made possible by the generosity of the Max H. Gluck Foundation. This event is organized by Angela Lessing, UC Riverside Gluck Fellow in Art History.
