The National Museum of Mexican Art: A New Model for Museums
Villafranca-Guzman, Nancy; Tortolero, Carlos
Journal of Museum Education, v35 n1 p83-92 Spr 2010
The National Museum of Mexican Art was founded by a group of educators in 1987. Twenty-three years later, as the first and only Latino museum accredited by the American Association of Museums, it presents exhibition programming of the highest quality, and conserves an extensive and inclusive art collection. Unlike many museums, it places education, outreach and accessibility at the center of its actions. This model enables it to be not just a museum of arts and culture in the traditional sense, but a serving institution. Because of its varied programs and central educational focus, the National Museum of Mexican Art remains relevant and responsive to its public.
