Land Not on exhibit ___________ Since the decade of the nineties an important cultural exchange started between Mexico and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco FAMSF. This connection started with the FAMSF returning an important number of pieces of the Teotihuacan culture some of which are still on display as part of the permanent collection at the De Young Museum. The FAMSF has presented two important exhibitions about Mexico Teotihuacan: The City of Gods 1992 and Courtly Art of the Ancient Maya 2004. It is worth mentioning that the government of Veracurz Mexico lent an original Olmec head only few cities have exhibit original heads that was on display during 2006. This piece was one of the most visited by the attending public at the museum. Also FAMSF has presented three important exhibitions in Mexican museums “Africa” at the Museo Nacional de Antropología e Historia in Mexico City 2002-2003 “American Accents” at the Museo Amparo in Puebla 2004 and the Exhibition of Henry Moore at the Museo de Jalapa 2004. The Teotihuacan Murals Mayan Stela and Miguel Covarrubias Mural are among the Mexican pieces on permanent display at the De Young Museum.
