Nov 08, 2017

The Bancroft Library Gallery has transformed for a new exhibit, featuring materials from Bancroft’s Latin Americana Collection dating as far back as the 16th century. The show, called ¡Viva la Fiesta!: Mexican Traditions of Celebration, explores the cycles of traditions that have been woven into Mexican culture for generations.

José Adrián Barragán-Álvarez, who started last year as the Curator for Latin Americana at UC Berkeley's Bancroft Library, introduces the show, and his own background in this story from the UCB Library News.
