Hilos de Tradición: Dresses of Mexico – Bullock Museum
October 1, 2022 - February 26, 2023$2
Hilos de Tradición: Dresses of Mexico is a collaborative exhibition with the Brownsville Historical Association that presents Mexican textiles as living traditions with roots that can be traced back thousands of years to the earliest peoples in Mesoamerica. The tools, patterns, materials, and techniques of crafting these textiles have evolved over the centuries. European influences and modernization have contributed to these changes. But the common thread in all of the textiles is the link they represent between Mexico’s past and present.
What: Two museums. Two beautiful exhibitions. Two dollars off.
The Blanton Museum of Art at The University of Texas at Austin and the Bullock State History Museum are teaming up to offer visitors $2 off any same-day admission ticket throughout the month of November. The promotion celebrates the two Austin museums’ traditional textile-themed exhibitions, Painted Cloth: Fashion and Ritual in Colonial Latin America at the Blanton and Hilos de Tradición: Dresses of Mexico at the Bullock, both of which explore Latin American textile arts. Museum visitors should present a respective full-price ticket or membership card to either museum to receive the discount on any same-day ticket.
