Mexican and American Art Meet


“The New York Years” by the acclaimed Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo is one of the featured exhibits at the Smithsonian American Art Museum until March 18, 2018.   His earlier lushly colored paintings portraying modern Mexican subjects earned him widespread acclaim.  In the early 1900’s he was drawn to New York City at a time when a hemispheric cross-cultural exchange was taking place.  This exhibit is the first to explore the influences of this modernist and the American art world.  SAAM is at 8th and F St., NW
