Familia Lorenzo Folk Art from Guerrero, Mexico

Debut exhibition of the Lorenzo Family in Houston, with a selection of up to 50 original works that will represent the wide repertoire of themes and styles of the Lorenzo ́s.

The exhibition brings together more than 50 original altarpieces created by three generations of family tradition over the past 50 years.

The altarpiece collection is a testament to the visual heritage of Mexican Folk Art, particularly the artisanal town of Xalitla, in the state of Guerrero, where the Lorenzo Family lives and works.

Also, the tour of artistic pieces demonstrates the intergenerational dialogue in which we appreciate multiple characters of Mexican popular culture such as wrestlers, Zapatista guerrillas, skulls of the Day of the Dead, images of the Loteria or Frida Kahlo along
