The exhibits here seemed to be divided into two major areas. One side was very current with protest art from Peru with great background on the problems there and art expressed in clothing, retableaus and posters. There was patron involvement opportunity—it just seemed very urgent....More

Unusual, large collection. Displayed imaginatively. Folk figures like Aguilar sisters great. Visited with our kids when they were young, returned with 20 somethings.
