The Mexican Museum
Fort Mason Center
2 Marina Blvd., Bldg. D
The Mexican Museum is pleased to welcome Dr. Amalia Mesa- Bains for a lecture on the Museum’s founder, Peter Rodriguez. Dr. Mesa-Bains will discuss Peter Rodriguez’s extensive career as an artist, collector, curator, and figurehead in the Chicano community. This program is being presented in conjunction with the Vida, Cultura y Color: The Art of Peter Rodriguez exhibition at The Mexican Museum.
Dr. Amalia Mesa-Bains is an educator, artist and cultural critic who has pioneered the documentation and interpretation of long Chicano traditions in Mexican-American art, both through her cultural activism and through her own altar-installations. Her work as an artist has been exhibited in national and international venues. She is a recipient of a distinguished MacArthur Fellowship. She founded and directed the Visual and Public Art department at California State University at Monterey Bay where she is now Professor Emerita.
