by Monica Villavicencio, Office of Marketing Communications

Eight sculptures from the permanent collection of San Francisco’s Mexican Museum are on display at USF.

The exhibit features bronze, iron, and steel works by famous 20th century Mexican sculptors, including Byron Galvez, Gunther Gerzso, and Manuel Neri.

Hands on for Museum Studies

Students in USF’s Master of Arts in Museum Studies Program assisted with the installation of the exhibit at its temporary USF home and are designing educational materials and organizing events for the exhibit. The statues are on display at the Kalmanovitz Hall sculpture terrace and in the building’s atrium through Dec. 12. Entrance is free and open to the public on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Alum is curator, museum director

Alumnus David de la Torre ’70, executive director of the Mexican Museum, curated the exhibit. He shared his vision for the museum in the recent issue of USF Magazine.
