Organizer’s Site

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. These are public and private expressions of faith meant to evidence divine intervention within daily life.

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