Learn about modern Mexican art movements--from Diego Rivera, whose large frescoes established the Mexican mural movement, to Frida Kahlo, who employed a folk-art style to explore questions of postcolonialism, gender, class and race in Mexican society.

And secure your ticket to see Mexican-American author Luis Alberto Urrea on Monday, Feb. 25.

Kathryn Zupsic will trace Mexican art from the 1930s through to the vibrant Chicano art scene in the United States today during a free lecture at 3 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, at Ketchum’s Community library.

The lecture is being held in conjunction with the NEA BIG READ project centered around Urrea’s book “Into the Beautiful North,” about the Mexican migration to the United States.

Zupsic is an art lecturer for San Francisco’s de Young, Legion of Honor and SFMOMA art museums and a part-time resident of Ketchum for 25 years. She will look at art from both sides of the border with colorful imagery lifted form ancient Mayan ruins, Mexican folk art, Catholicism, graffiti, cars and the L.A. Freeways.

The library will offer online registration reserving seats for a free lecture by Luis Alberto Urrea, who wrote the book “Into the Beautiful North” at noon Monday, Feb. 25. Urea will talk about his book at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 6.

Tim Price, the library’s program director, said that 100 tickets will be released. Remaining seats will be available the evening of the event on a first-come basis.

In addition, the event will be livestreamed to a group at Hailey Public Library. And it will be available for viewers to see for a week after the lecture.
