Mexican Revolution Exhibit
I designed and helped to install the exhibit El Paso: The Other Side of the Mexcian Revolution on display October 1, 2010 to January 10, 2011 at the El Paso Museum of History. This bilingual exhibit's content was created by faculty and students of The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP)'s Department of History and coincided with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Mexican Revolution in 2010. As a strategic base for revolutionaries and home to the largest ethnic-Mexican population in the United States at the time, the city of El Paso became a major site of cultural production by journalists,
writers, businessmen, photographers, filmmakers, and musicians. This culture not only chronicled the Revolution, but was itself a battleground of images and ideas. My design also included five-foot high maps indicating historic “Sites of Memory” around downtown El Paso, an eight-foot wide timeline, as well as over 100 text panels. A portion of the original exhibit remains on permanent display on the museum's second floor. More information about the exhibit is available online.
