|Location||San Jose City Hall|
We are proud to be one of the major sponsors of an important art installation at San Jose City Hall: The Lost Murals of Covarrubias.
“The Lost Murals of Covarrubias” is on display at San Jose City Hall through February 2011.
Mexican painter Miguel Covarrubias created a group of fantastic murals for the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island, and they were lost in storage after World War II. Five murals have since been recovered and carefully restored, and one is now installed in the DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park.
Presented in partnership with the City of San Jose and History San Jose, the Mexican Heritage Corporation is making some of these historic treasures, along with some other examples of Covarrubias’s artwork from a private collection, accessible to the public. Hoge Fenton and shareholder Dan Ballesteros, who serves as chair of the board of trustees of the Mexican Heritage Corporation, a nonprofit committed to the celebration and preservation of the art and culture of Mexico and host of the annual San Jose Mariachi Festival, are proud to be an underwriter of this important exhibit.
