Starting September 17 and going through February 2017 Crow Collection of Asian Art, located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, will feature a groundbreaking exhibition of Talavera Poblana. Here's why it's a must-see exhibit.
The pieces are breathtaking.
Talavera Poblana is a well-known collection of tin-glazed earthware, handmade in Puebla, Mexico. The pieces date back to the 16th century and have admirers from all around the world.
It's the first of its kind.
This is the first time the historic Talavera Poblana works from the Museum Franz Mayer have traveled outside of Mexico. Explore the works, many of which date back 11 centuries and become captivated in the timeless story of artistic expression. Honoring the Mexican heritage of the collection, all content for this exhibition will be presented in both English and Spanish.
After the exhibit, head to the party!
Head to the Dallas Arts District on Sunday, Sept. 18 to celebrate the opening of the exhibit. In partnership with the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the street festival will include performances, demonstrations and art activities that represent and showcase the different cultures that have influenced Talavera Poblana. It's an all day event (10 am – 6 pm) so there's plenty of time to head down to the district, check out the exhibit and join in on the street festival fun.
