Mexican Street Graphics,” a superficially vibrant exhibition at the Massachusetts College of Art + Design, promises a taste of authentic regional visual cuisine.

And to further represent nonportable wall paintings, they hired a team of Mexican sign painters to create simulations of actual signs. Made on canvas, wood panels designed to resemble construction fencing, and rectangles of corrugated plastic, these paintings replicate ads for food stands, auto-parts stores, locksmiths, barber shops, and other businesses. The copies represent the show’s most visually assertive dimension, and because they are simulations, they are its biggest problem.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row font_color=”#aeaeae” css=”.vc_custom_1415872632368{padding-top: 5% !important;padding-bottom: 5% !important;background-color: #252525 !important;}” type=”full_width” background_style=”normal” columns_height=”normal_height”][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_row_inner type=”boxed” css=”.vc_custom_1415872623771{padding-top: 35px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1433203761468{margin-bottom: 45px !important;}”]Massachusetts College of Art and Design[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”This show could be a great walk-in sourcebook of quirky images and styles for MassArt’s art and design students.
