Mexico as Seen Through Her Children's Eyes

Dr. Barry E. Moore selected this exhibit in 1995 in conjunction with the Indiana Humanities Council and Indiana International Forum. It contains artwork by twenty Mexican children who share their perceptions of life in their native land in this delightful exhibit. From simple, honest, impressions of animals to depictions of special customs and festivities, these children from six to thirteen years old invite us to view Mexico from their unique perspective. The young artists represented here show activities that bring delight to them as well as the viewers. The artwork varies from very young children's depictions to mature sophisticated compositions. This exhibit has been shown throughout the public schools in Indiana, the Rockford Discovery Center, and John A. Logan College.
