México 200 is the Museum-wide celebration of the bicentennial of Mexico’s Independence and the DMA presents the special exhibition- José Guadalupe Posada: The Birth of Mexican Modernism. Posada was a prolific printmaker and is now considered the most influential Mexican artist of the beginning of the 20th century. His images of costumed skeleton characters, or calaveras, anticipate Mexican mural painting of the 1920s and 30s which he used as a medium for political and social satire.
