Contemporary Mexican Prints pop-up exhibition, at the El Paso Museum of Art during Chalk the Block 2017.
We collected a lot of great Mexican prints while creating the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta, and wanted to show those too.
Over 800 people saw our Contemporary Mexican Print pop-up show the first evening at the El Paso Museum of Art (Oct 7), when Chalk the Block opened with a jazz band -- Gabriel Balderas Quartet -- on the first floor of the museum.
The print by Carlos Flores Rom,
and the small one above it, by Oscar Navarro Serrano,
