The Arts and the end

We had a "to do" list of things friends had suggested that we do while in Mexico City.  We had two more places to go and today was our last day there.  On our list was to go to the Belles Artes building and probably was the intent to attend a performance of the performing arts but we didn't have time.  It was a beautiful building and there was an art exhibit of one man whose art work and whose spider was out front but from the posters shown, we opted not to go see his exhibit. 

A very large spider!

This is a photo of a photo of the stage inside the Belles Arte building.  
We walked through another wooded Plaza Alameda park on this Valentines day.  A few youth had signs that they would give "brazos" for free today.

The Potted Potter was playing at a local theater and we read online that:
 "The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff
 takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes. "  

Museo Nacional de Arte

We took the time to enter the very large building filled with art work of Mexico.  We noticed the many people working were in coats and scarfs and realized afterwards that the signs said the temperature in the building was intentionally left cool to protect the art.  No wonder it felt so cold inside!  Below are several works of art from the different sections.  

Can't remember the artist's name but we were always drawn to his works.

Religious Art showing an act of great charity.  

We thought these next three pictures of the local life were fun.

Again we didn't record the names of the artists but thought their works were religious masterpieces.

Then it was time to pack, board the bus and head back to Tampico.
