Mexican Cycles: Festival Images by George O. Jackson de Llano

September 26, 2007 – April 20, 2008 (new closing date)

Museum: Natural History Museum

Location: 2nd Floor, Northwest Wing, Special Exhibit Gallery (Hall 25)

On view are approximately 150 color photographs of the religious festivals of 30 Indigenous communities from across Mexico taken by the Mexican-American photographer George O. Jackson de Llano between 1990 and 2001. These dramatic images illustrate the diversity of these festivals at the turn of the 21st century and the complex interplay of Indigenous and European cultural traditions expressed through them.
