In the Shadow of Cortes: From Veracruz to Mexico City

March 16 – April 17, 2015

Look Out! Art Gallery, C200 Snyder Hall (RCAH), 362 Bogue Street, Michigan State University


Michigan State University is pleased to host In the Shadow of Cortés: From Veracruz to Mexico City, designed and prepared by Professor Kathleen Myers (Indiana University) with photographs by Steven Raymer (National Geographic and Indiana University). The images in this exhibit record a journey along Cortés’s route of conquest, and interviews with the people who live in these places today.  This journey reveals much about Mexico’s complex identity and its variety of ways  to understand the legacy of a conquest that took place nearly 500 years ago.

We invite faculty, students, and general public to visit the photographic exhibit held at the Look Out! Art Gallery, Residential College of Arts and Humanities, between March 16 and April 17th, 2015 and to participate in a series of events that will provide fora of discussion and reflection on Latin American rich and diverse history.
