Casa Dolores is pleased to present the new exhibition, Saintly and Spirited: Art Made of Tin. The story of tin traverses continents and mining trails, centuries and cultures. Once meant for utilitarian purposes, it grows to become an important material that crosses the creative spectrum in Mexico: from painting the divine on retablos and symbolic offerings for milagros, to domestic ornament, the carnivalesque and recycled product for design.
