Two art exhibits are opening tomorrow in the University Art Museum. One features the work of 16th- to 19th-century European portrait miniatures, and the other showcases Mexican prints dated from the 1930s through the ‘60s.

Rather than “small,” the event’s page explains that the definition of “miniature” originally referred to “the art of painting images in books with water-soluble pigment.”

The Mexican prints come to CSU from the Taller de Gráfica Popular, or the People’s Graphic Workshop. Labels and wall text will be bilingual.

The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and can be found on the first floor of the University Center for the Arts.
