KANSAS CITY, Mo - The Vision of Mexican Art Exhibit will be at Union Station from September 1, 2012 until November 11, 2012.
The exhibit features painting, drawings, sculptures and photographs from 53 of Mexico’s most renowned artists including Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo and Jose Luis Cuevas.
The works of art belong to the Mexican government. The Kansas City Museum and the Consulate of Mexico in Kansas City is responsible for bring the exhibit to Union Station.
Roman Murguia, a board member at the Union Station, says he hopes the art will recognize the growth and importance of the Mexican community in Kansas City.
“We look at Union Station as really Kansas City’s front porch," Murguia said. "That means that we’re open and inclusive to all of the different communities. One of the things everybody knows is the Mexican American community has had a long role in the railroads of this city."
Kansas City will be the final stop for the exhibit in the United States.
