Hilos de Tradición Member Reception


October 6, 2022 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Join us for an exclusive Member Reception for our special exhibition Hilos de Tradición: Dresses of Mexico!

Event Details

Explore the exhibition at this private Member-only after-hours event featuring live performances and complimentary light bites!

In collaboration with the Brownsville Historical Association, Hilos de Tradición: Dresses of Mexico features 37 traditional outfits representing the traditional textiles, art, dance, and culture of each Mexican state.

The dresses reflect both the indigenous and European influences that have shaped Mexican culture and tradition. Weaving, embroidery, and lace feature prominently with heavy fabrics and multiple layers that speak to the climate of Mexico’s mountainous regions. Ruffles and flounces add movement to the dresses worn for dancing and celebration. Some dresses reflect Mexico’s vaquero culture and revolutionary spirit, while other dresses are a connection to Mexico’s deep Catholic faith. Through it all, color and pattern shine brightly as a testament to the vibrant and varied regions of Mexico.

This is a limited capacity event open to Museum Members and Member guests only. Please RSVP in advance to attend.
