Zacatlan Mosaic Photo Exhibit at Devonshire

(10.25.17) The Devonshire Cultural Center is currently exhibiting photographs of the Great Mosaic Wall of Zacatna, Mexico, taken by local photographer Howard Frank. The 900-foot wall was built over two years (2014-16), and was funded by three north American non-profits, including the Wilmette Arts Guild.

The city of Zacatlan, already designated as a "magic city" by the Mexican government, is roughly the size of Skokie, and now is home to this cultural touchstone. The themes of the many panels, the work of 14 local artists and many volunteers, include a modern interpretation of agricultural symbols, a depiction of Aztec deities, Zacatlan life, and religious images. 

The exhibit ends on November 30.
