El Paso Museum of Archaeology Presents Traditions and Symbols

The El Paso Museum of Archaeology presents Traditions and Symbols, on view through January 30, 2011.

This anthropological and historical exhibit will show artwork and altars/ofrendas of the Juntos Art Association of El Paso and utilize that artwork to explore Hispanic-American traditions extending back into Mexican and Native American history and culture. It will thus consider the influence that the diversity of cultures has had on the art of contemporary artists.

These traditions have shown a fascinating development over time, as well as instances of synthesis with European culture and traditions, especially Catholicism. Traditions will include Día de los Muertos, Navidad, Las Posadas and Los Reyes Magos/Three Kings Day.
