Madrecitas: Exposición de Pequeno Formato

July 27-December 31, 2013

The Museum's first all-Spanish exhibit, an art exhibit from Mexicali, Mexico.

This was its first United States exhibition, making Madrecitas now an international exhibit.  The organizers of the exhibit are artists themselves and drivers of the local artistic community.  They started this small format exhibit to provide an opportunity for their students to gain exhibit experience.  Now, five years later, the blossoming students of CETYS Universidad are joined by artists ranging from Southern California and Mexico City to Spain.

Based in a hallway of CETYS Universidad, the inaugural exhibit had 60 pieces. In 2013 the exhibit boasted 300 pieces and included 2D, 3D, and video format. The exhibit represents the vibrant artistic community just across the border.
