Artistic and cultural exchange between California and Mexico has flourished since the time when California was part of the United States of Mexico. On view at the Laguna Art Museum from October 15, 2017 – January 14, 2018, California Mexicana highlights this vital aspect of the state’s history through a panorama of works by artists on both sides of the border, from scenes of mission and rancho life through images of romantic Old California, to the emergence of a cross-border modern art scene.
