Four Views from the MOLAA Permanent Collection

The images I've included are of Leopoldo Méndez cutting a linoleum block & his linocut titled: "The Calaveras' Symphony Concert," from 1934. His relief prints, along with prints by Pablo O'Higgins & José Clemente Orozco are part of the "4 Views" exhibition currently featured at MOLAA.
Another equally exciting part of the exhibition is titled: "Siqueiros: Sketches for the Mural Death to the Invader." Running concurrently is a video about the artist - "Siqueiros: A Muralist in Exile," and on 10/14 there will be an "Interlogue" discussion/lecture about the artist from 7:30 - 9:00 PM in the Museum's Charter Screen Room.
MOLAA is free on Sundays (sponsored by Target, so go if you wish) but closed on Mondays & Tuesdays. Otherwise, the hours are Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays - 11 - 5:00 PM, Thursdays - 11 - 9:00 PM. Closed on Turkey Day. $6.00 gets you in if you flash your student ID's & the address is 828 Alamitos Blvd., Long Beach.
