Connections Across Centuries: Rufino Tamayo, Raul Baltazar, and the Ancient Americas

Rufino Tamayo (1899–1991), an internationally renowned Mexican artist of the 20th century, often drew inspiration from Mesoamerican art in the creation of modern figures. Hear more about Tamayo’s interest in the ancient Americas from museum educator Eduardo Sánchez and local artist Raul Baltazar, whose own practice looks to Mesoamerican culture. Baltazar is working with the students of Charles White Elementary on an original installation responding to the art in “Rufino Tamayo: Innovation and Experimentation.” The conversation will be moderated by exhibition curator Rachel Kaplan.

Complimentary parking is available in the lot at 611 South Carondelet Street between Wilshire Boulevard and 6th Street. Spaces are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Enter the gallery at the corner of Park View and Wilshire Boulevard.

Free, tickets required.

This program will take place off site at Charles White Elementary School Gallery | 2401 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057.
