A new outdoor exhibit at Liberty Station chronicles 100 years of history through the headlines and photographs of one of Mexico’s leading newspapers.
The photographic exhibition “El Universal, 100 Years in the Life of Mexico & the World” opened this week and runs through Sept. 28.
“The Arts District welcomes this historic exhibition to our campus and we look forward to having visitors from both sides of the border,” said NTC Foundation Executive Director Alan Ziter. “The collaboration with the Mexican Consulate, Tijuana Innovadora and El Universal continues to establish the Arts District as in international destination for art and history.”
El Universal was founded at the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1916 and now has 300,000 print and 3 million online readers.
Nearly 50 panels are on display in the “Arcade of the Arts” along the old Navy barracks. Visitors can begin their tour at the Liberty Public Market and take a walk through Mexican history.
The El Universal exhibition has already been displayed in the Mexico City subway and outside the Mexican Senate.
