​The goal of this project is to assemble an important collection of Mexican folk art and educational resources that will be specifically associated with the Ironwood Branch Library.

Curator, Linda McAllister, has focused on six themes in presenting the artwork as a reflection of Mexican culture.  These themes include symbols of Mexico, utilitarian objects of personal adornment, representations of local ecology, offerings and rituals, fiestas, and characters in Mexican folklore.  The collection will also feature books and other interpretive materials designed specifically for Ironwood Library users and area teachers.
