Painted in Mexico

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Thoma Foundation has granted Los Angeles County Museum of Art $100,000 in support of the publication Painted in Mexico, 1700-1790: Pinxit Mexici. The first major exhibition devoted to eighteenth-century Mexican painting, Painted in Mexico is co-organized by Fomento Cultural Banamex, Mexico City and LACMA, where it is on view from November 19, 2017 through March 18, 2018. It will travel subsequently to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.


The Foundation accepts proposals from 501(c)(3) organizations for academic programs, exhibitions, lectures, symposia and publications that provide promising new insights into the fields of art in which we collect.
