The Mexican Cultural Institute in New Orleans is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition New Orleans 300 Years / 30 Artists presented and organized by the Second Story Gallery and the New Orleans Healing Center as part of the St. Claude Arts District’s second Saturday Art walk. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2018, from 6:00 PM until 9:30 PM. New Orleans 300 Years / 30 Artists is a tricentennial exhibition celebrating New Orleans visual culture in 2018. The exhibition will run through November 3, 2018.

In 2018 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico established the Mexican Cultural Institute in New Orleans. The primary objective of the Mexican Cultural Institute is to promote the image of Mexico by supporting cultural expressions in its broadest and fullest sense, including multidisciplinary forms like visual arts, music, performing arts, film, literature and gastronomy. The mission of the Cultural Institutes is to be protagonists of the cultural scene in their different host cities.
