Exhibition Showcases Mexican Gastronomy Through Folk Art and Interior Design

Casa Dolores, Center for the Study of the Popular Arts of Mexico, is proud to present “Buen Provecho! Dining in Mexico” as its first exhibition in its programming lineup for 2013.


The exhibit celebrates cultural dining traditions and the artistic environments in which Mexican gastronomy is experienced.

Visitors will appreciate formal, informal, indoor, and outdoor settings in this three-gallery show. Dining ware by the famous Mexican ceramic studio of Ken Edwards brings to life a Spanish colonial-influenced dining room. Interior design influences by Mexican painter Rufino Tamayo can be observed in a mid-century living room, set for refrescos and antojitos (drinks and appetizers). Patrons will also view an outdoor patio featuring Mexican glass, equipales furniture, and much more. In the museum’s scenic kitchen, the renown pineapples of Patamban will be highlighted through a documentary screening on the making of these unique beverage receptacles.

Date: Saturday, February 16, 2013

Time: 1pm - 4pm

Location: Casa Dolores is located at 1023 Bath Street (The Botiller Adobe)
