The Sun Valley Museum of Art will host its final free evening exhibition tour of its BIG IDEA project, “The Mexican Graphic Tradition: Printmaking and the Political,” at 4:30 and 5:30 tonight—Thursday, June 2.

The free tours will be offered at The Museum in Ketchum, 191 Fifth Street East.

The exhibition features works by such artists as Jose Guadalupe Posada as it shows how artists in Mexico have used printmaking as a tool for disseminating news, sharing political views and celebrating the Day of the Dead, folk dances and other elements of Mexico’s culture. Prints have documented the Mexican Revolution, promoted anti-imperialism and warned Mexican citizens of the dangers of fascism during World War II.

The exhibition also features the works of Christie Tirado, who was commissioned by The Museum to create prints celebrating individuals in the Wood River Valley who kept the community going through the pandemic.

The next BIG IDEA project and exhibition focuses on “Gardens: Collaborations with Nature.” It will open June 17.
