We congratulate University of San Francisco students Merrill Amos and Leah Belcher for their breath-taking curatorial debut at the helm of the exhibition Dobles Vidas: Folk Art from The Mexican Museum at the Mary and Carter Thacher Gallery last week. The exhibition will remain on view until mid-December. It features 62 works — some rarely-before-exhibited — from The Mexican Museum’s 7,000 object folk art collection. Highlighting six artists, ten regions and two major collectors (Nelson Rockefeller and Rex May), the exhibition interprets colorful, mixed media objects as hybrids of fine art and functionality; hand-crafted entities that reveal multiple stories about the people, places and traditions that define Mexican folk art. To enrich the show, USF is developing online educational components, an interactive map, topical lectures, pop-up shows and bilingual tours led by USF museum studies graduate students. Glori Simmons (below, center) and Marlena Cannon de Mendez provided visionary oversight of the project.
