Raul Anguiano Exhibition- The last Icon of the Mexican Mural School of Painting


An exhibit of signed lithographs and other media made by Raul Anguiano will be on display during the month of February at the La Jolla/Riford Library. Anguiano was an important internationally recognized painter whose style is quintessentially Mexican. The exhibit at the La Jolla Library, which officially opens on Sunday February 4th, from 2-4pm, is described as a legacy collection donated to Tijuana by the artist, who visited Tijuana many times in the last three decades of his life to lecture and hold workshops.

It is Tijuana's first permanent art collection featuring the last icon of the Mexican Muralist School of painting. He is famous for painting indigenous peoples and depicting the merge of Indigenous and Spanish cultures. The exhibit also celebrates the close ties between San Diego and Tijuana and the cultural richness of the border mega-region.
