Mexican Heritage Project Exhibit in the Arizona History Museum

18 Jul

The Library and Archives is proud to announce that a new exhibit featuring photographs from the Library and Archives’ Mexican Heritage Project is now up in the Arizona History Museum here in Tucson. Mexican Heritage Project Photographs: La Herencia del Pueblo was a groundbreaking effort at the Arizona Historical Society to help preserve and tell a story of Tucson’s Mexican American community from the Gadsden Purchase through World War II. Exhibit curators Alexandria Caster and Lizeth Zepeda created an exhibit to highlight some of the amazing images from the collection. For more information on the Mexican Heritage Project, check out its front page on the Arizona Memory Project website then have some fun looking through the photos. And the next time you’re in Tucson come by the Arizona History Museum and see the physical exhibit!
