Reforma - an outdoor art gallery

Mexico has always been an inspiration for artists, and Mexico City has always been a wonderful place for art lovers. Art is publically displayed with great pride throughout the city, and one gallery which is high on the list of places to visit if you love photography is "las Rejas de Reforma".

Every few months a new exhibition is mounted, and as you stroll along Reforma towards Chapultepec Park, it is easy to admire the latest photographic display. At present the exhibition is "Lacandones en el mundo moderno" - an exploration of the changing way of life of the indigenous groups who live in Chiapas State in la Selva Lacandona. Also currently on display is a wonderful exhibition of recent bronze sculptures by Leonora Carrington.
