The Museo de las Americas, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico and the Mexican Cultural Center present Wixaritari. This exhibit provides viewers with an opportunity to experience one of the most important and unique cultures in Mexico today. Detached and elusive, the Huichol people have managed to preserve their way of life and and maintain a spiritual relationship with the universe through complex ceremonies. Living in accordance with their original instructions, in a world where colorful visions and conversations with nature conjoin to create a resplendent aesthetic, Wixaritari: the Huichol Art of Mexico speaks a contemporary tongue.
