Mexico in Chicago

The National Museum of Mexican Art reports that Mayor Daley is marking Cinco de Mayo by declaring 2010 to be “The Year of Mexico in Chicago.”  NMMA originated the idea, highlighting 2010 as the 200th anniversary of Mexican independence and the 100th anniversay of the Mexican revolution.

NMMA holds its Cinco de Mayo gala on Thursday, May 8, 5:30 p.m. at the Fairmont Hotel, with the 911 Mambo Orchestra.  Proceeds support the museum’s educational programs and two youth outreach initiatives — including Radio Arte, the winner of this year’s Studs Terkel Award from Community Media Workshop.
