CaptionOrganized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the National Gallery of Art the exhibition builds upon a history of cooperation with Mexico. The Fine Arts Museums’ relations with Mexico catalyzed by an unexpected and large bequest of Teotihuacan wall paintings in the late 1970s have resulted in a series of collaborative projects among them the exhibition Teotihuacan: City of the Gods 1993. "Courtly Art of the Ancient Maya is the culmination of many years of cooperation and understanding between San Francisco Washington and Mexico " comments Harry S. Parker III director of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. "The exchange of ideas and resources over the past decades has been a vital factor in organizing this important exhibition and we are appreciative of the generosity and the collaborative spirit of the individuals and their institutions throughout the Americas and the world that have made this exceptional endeavor possible. We are particularly grateful to the cultural leaders scholars and government officials particularly Mexico’s Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes and the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia for their invaluable assistance. We also wish to thank the many other nations who are lending their works to this important exhibition." ***** The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco wishes to recognize and celebrate the Mexican Museum its collaborative partner in organizing the film series for these evenings and the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts its collaborative partner in organizing El Dia De Los Muertos at the Legion of Honor.
