Join San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia for the opening event for the exhibit A Little Piece of Mexico: The Postcards of Guillermo Kahlo and His Contemporaries.
Of all the postcards of all the countries, Mexican postcards are unique. Mexico in the early 1900s was pretty much unknown territory, rich in a diversity of people, customs and ethnic dresses and a place of conflicts and wars, generals and traitors, beautiful women and dangerous men, stunning landscapes and architecture – and home to many photographers.
This exhibit explores Mexico from the turn of the last century through post cards.
This event is part of ¡Viva! San Francisco Public Library’s Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
