Escultura!
The Mexican Museum & University of San Francisco
Explore an iconic exhibition at University of San Francisco's Rooftop Sculpture Terrace! It's a collaboration of The Mexican Museum and USF's hacher Gallery and Masters in Museum Studies program.
Among the featured artists are Francisco Ziga, Felipe Castaeda, Jos Luis Cuevas, Jorge Duron, and Armando Amaya, most of whom studied at the acclaimed La Esmeralda in Mexico City. Their art presents female archetypes that strongly reference Mesoamerican forms. Also included are sculptures by Manuel Neri, Byron Galvez, and Gunther Gerzso, artists who formed abstract rather than realistic figures. Together, these sculptures offer a survey of 20th century Latin American sculpture that emanates from rich tradition and explores human emotion.
USF's recently-launched Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Museum Studies is designed for entry-level and emerging museum professionals as well as professionals from other fields wishing to pursue a career in the museum field. The program prepares its graduates for positions in leadership in artistic, cultural, educational, and heritage organizations, and for long-term professional growth.
Admission is free.
Through December 2014, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
