What: The Art and Archaeology of Ancient West Mexico
Chairman of the Department of African Art and Indian Art of Americas at the Art Institute of Chicago Richard Townsend will talk about the sophisticated communities that flourished in West Mexico between ca. 100 BCE and 700 CE. Their archaeological settlements and lively ceramic figures in a variety of local styles provide insights into their reliance on the annual cycles of life, death and renewal.
