The University of San Francisco will be hosting an insider’s introduction and opening reception for its new exhibition, Dobles Vidas: Folk Art from The Mexican Museum.

The exhibition will showcase more than 60 works exploring the stories an object can communicate about those who create, use, and collect them. The exhibit holds works from a number of Mexico’s internationally-recognized artists and collectors. Dobles Vidas is the second collaboration between The Mexican Museum and the University of San Francisco’s Thacher Gallery and Masters in Museum Studies Program.

Dobles Vidas includes works from nine of Mexico’s states, looking at the ways that locale influences the materials and aesthetics of a particular artwork. Focusing on place, gallery visitors will discover the many ways that function influences form.

This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information on the exhibition, please visit:
