One of very few Mexican-American art museums in the country, this is home to a small collection of 20th-century Mexican art, photos from the Mexican revolution, masks from the Mexican state of Guerrero, and prints by Mexican political printmaker and engraver José Guadalupe Posada. But the museum is perhaps best known for its annual “Young Latino Artists” show held each summer (check website for exact dates). The museum also hosts the Viva la Vida (Live the Life) festival and parade, the city’s largest and longest-running annual Day of the Dead celebration (last weekend in October). The elaborate Day of the Dead shrines showcased during this period are not to be missed.
