General Motors de Mexico and the Embassy of Mexico in the United States, through its Cultural Institute, are proud to present the exhibit The GM de Mexico Collection of Drawings and Graphic Art.

The GM de Mexico Collection of Drawings and Graphic Art was created in the late 1960s and achieves a vast exploration of the rich aspects of 20th century Mexican art. Shown abroad for the first time since 1969, this exhibition is divided into five thematic segments that illuminate the evolution of Mexican art from Muralism to modernity. Through its narrative, the collection offers a unique opportunity to appreciate the global impact of Mexico's artistic contributions.
