This bilingual, English-Spanish exhibition features some 12 original drawings by artist-researcher Jose Perez de Arce, which portray aspects of life in the Andean cultural area before the European conquest. Its objectives are to call attention to the abundance and diversity of aesthetic materials developed by the peoples of the region, and to place the historical materials in their human and cultural context.
