Located in the Pilsen neighborhood, the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago aims to celebrate the works of Latina/o artists. If you can't get to the actual museum, its site has a range of information about its collections, outreach efforts, and educational programs. The Collections section introduces visitors to the various artworks housed at the museum, such as Folk Art, Photography, and Textiles, and lists contributing artists, appraisers, and detailed information about its Permanent Collection Policy. Moving on, the Education area has some fine resources for teachers who might be visiting the museum without their students, including some digital resources of note. Also, the site includes a listing of special programs, complete with a link to the museum's press room and an area where folks can sign up to join its mailing list.
