Frist Center hosts Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber meeting April 5

Free admission to Mexico and Modern Printmaking exhibit

The Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce* invites its members and guests to meet at the Frist to see the magnificent art exhibition honoring some of the most renown mexican printmakers such as Diego Rivera, Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siquieros and others, currently on display at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville.

Mexico and Modern Printmaking: A Revolution in the Graphic Arts, 1920-1950 examines the vital contributions made by Mexican and foreign-born printmakers working in Mexico. The exhibition features 125 prints and posters by 50 artists, including Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, who, while best known for their revolutionary murals and paintings, made extraordinary contributions to the field of printmaking, which they embraced because it could reach a wide audience with their political message.

The exhibition also features works by some American artists affiliated with the Taller de Gráfica Popular, a celebrated cooperative print workshop founded in Mexico City in 1937. Playing a crucial role in sustaining the ideals of the Mexican Revolution, the workshop printed limited-edition works to capture the attention of international collectors, as well as mass-produced posters and leaflets intended for widespread distribution to the native populace.

FREE admission and complementary parking for NAHCC members and guests on April 5th, 2007 is made possible thanks to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

NAHCC members wishing to attend please call Loraine Segovia or Alejandra Rodriguez at 615-216-5737 or via e-mail
