This Natural History Museum exhibition features the work of more than 150 of Mexico's finest living folk artists, with nearly 400 pieces representing Mexico's diverse artistic and cultural heritage. Artists from Mexico's
Native American community are well represented (21 indigenous cultures from 19 of Mexico’s 31 states), and their work showcases a wide array of materials including: clay, plant fibers, wood, metals, cotton, wool, silk,
paper, stone, leather, shell, wax, feathers and glass. The work of these great masters are the finest examples of the unique combination of innovation (and sometimes whimsy), and village or family tradition that
characterizes the Mexican folk arts.

Railroad Bill returns by popular demand to entertain and lead costumed youngsters in the parade through the Gardens. Parents will want to walk along–or beat the group to the end of the parade–to take photos of their own children at a special photo-op spot. Don’t be surprised to meet families who come every year to add to the photo diary of their children’s lives.
