'Mexico: Crisis and Uprising'  opens Saturday at UTEP's Centennial Museum

The Mexico: Crisis and Uprising exhibition, which opens Saturday at UTEP’s Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens, is designed to teach us to recognize each other despite the walls that separate us.

The opening reception is from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 610 W. University Avenue on the UTEP campus. It will be up through June 25, 2022.

“It is an artistic bridge that unites two societies in need of authentic voices,” according to a post on the museum’s Facebook page. “Now is the time to speak to ourselves with honest narratives. This is an exhibition for everyone who is in need of a space of empathetic communication; it is a space where art makes an effort to recover the dignity of the peoples of both nations.”

This exhibit features the work of 32 artists from the Asociación Plástica de Monterrey and Asociación de la Plástica de Garza Garcia, and independent artists in Monterrey, Nuevo León, MX.

Museum hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The gardens are open daily dawn to dusk.

The Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens is part of the El Paso Community Foundation’s Cultural Roundtable. For more info on how your organization can join the roundtable, please email
