The Newark Museum is opening an exhibit today on the Mexican Revolution to mark the centennial of that event.

Called “Indigenismo: Ancient Roots in Mexican Art”, the show will be on display from June 16 through August 9. In the Indigenismo movement, Mexico’s artists and writers used indigenous imagery and concepts to convey their ideas on the revolution. The exhibit contains some 25 pieces of art collected by Bank of America, among them some of Mexico’s artists, including Rufino Tamayo, Diego Rivera and Francisco Zúñiga.

The museum is running a series of educational programs in conjunction with the exhibit. On July 9 from 1 to 4 p.m., seniors are invited to meet an ethnomusicologist who will explore how music is shaped by ancient social and cultural influences. The talk is free, but pre-registration required; call 973-596-6613.

For kids, there are drop-in workshops on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays from July 7 to 30, from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Kids can learn about the artists in the exhibit and create a print using symbols from ancient Mesoamerican cultures.
