Friday Fish Wrap

The most exciting news of the week is that some items from the huge collection of the Mexican Museum - in storage for over twenty years - will be on display in September at the Palo Alto Art Center. The plans for a new museum were sidelined over twenty years ago due to lack of money and difficulties with the SF Redevelopment Agency. There is a possibility that the museum may finally be able to find a new home in downtown San Francisco but not before 2012 (at the earliest and money permitting). In the meantime, the show in Palo Alto will be the first chance in several years to see parts of this priceless collection.
