Monday, Jul 22, 2019 at 10:00am

Missouri History Museum
5700 Lindell Boulevard
Saint Louis, MO 63112

Flores Mexicanas: A Lindbergh Love Story unveils a painting and a story that haven’t been seen in decades. The highlight of the exhibit is Alfredo Ramos Martínez’s magnificent and massive Flores Mexicanas painting—one of many wedding gifts given to Anne and Charles Lindbergh in 1929. This and other featured gifts illustrate the couple’s celebrity status as ambassadors for aviation and America.

Flores Mexicanas also examines the couple’s connections to Mexico, as well as the relationship between the US and its southern neighbor during the early 20th century. Explore the Lindberghs’ love story, learn about Alfredo Ramos Martínez’s importance as a Mexican artist, and discover the necessity of conservation within museums.

This exhibit is presented in both English and Spanish.

Organized by the Missouri History Museum in collaboration with the University of Missouri–St. Louis’s graduate program in Museums, Heritage, and Public History.

Exhibition Date: June 1, 2019 - September 2, 2019
