Selected from the museum’s permanent collection, this group of votive paintings from Mexico spans the early 19th to the mid-20th centuries. Known as ex-votos (meaning “from a vow” in Latin) or retablos (meaning “behind the altar” in Latin), these small paintings on tin are religious offerings venerating the divine or expressing gratitude for an answered prayer.

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays, 12:00 noon – 4:00 p.m.,
Thursdays, 12:00 noon – 7:00 p.m.
