Among its attractions is a striking mural by a disciple De Diego Rivera dating from 1941. It illustrates important moments in the history of Mexico. It also has an interior courtyard with beautiful Talavera tiles. He always hosts free exhibitions.
The Mexican Cultural Institute is a historic mansion in Columbia Heights NW. Several top government officials lived in it before the Mexican government bought it in 1921 as their embassy. When the Mexican embassy moved to Pennsylvania Avenue in 1989, this building became a cultural center. The building itself is four floors with grand halls and rooms. There’s a salon, a blue tiled hall, and a grand hall. As you wind up the stairs, you’ll notice beautiful murals along the way. The cultural center hosts events, music, films, lecture and art exhibits. It’s free and open until 6pm. It’s worth a visit!
Gorgeous setting. A hidden gem in DC where i grew up but had never heard of MCI. the curated exhibition in May 2019 was stunningly well put together. thank you Alison and company!
