Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a catalog, and public programs on artistic trends in Mesoamerica from 950 through 1521 CE and on the persistence of native traditions and identity after the Spanish conquest.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is requesting a $400,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support the implementation of a major traveling exhibition, Children of the Plumed Serpent: The Legacy of Quetzalcoatl in Ancient Mexico, and its accompanying scholarly catalogue and multiple interpretive programs. This exhibition will be the first systematic investigation of the diversity of cultural and artistic traditions in Mesoamerica during the period referred to as Postclassic (AD 1000-1521) in the archaeological literature. Extending its reach into the present day, the exhibition?s innovative approach illuminates the social and cultural complexities of late pre-Columbian and early colonial eras as expressed in the art of the period and examines the enduring nature of these complexities in contemporary Mesoamerican societies.
