Join the Branigan Cultural Center Tuesday, November 12, 2019, through Tuesday, January 7, 2020, for “Bandits & Heroes, Poets and Saints,” an exhibit that explores how cultures of Africa blended with indigenous and colonial Portuguese traditions to form the vibrant and complex cultural mosaic of modern Brazil.

Hands-on interactives, music, videos, large scale photographs, original artifacts, and artwork by historical and contemporary artists illuminate how complex history, religious devotion, and diverse traditions come together in the Northeast of Brazil.

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance. Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil was organized by Con/Vida-Popular Arts of the Americas and Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Detroit, MI.

The museum is located at 501 N. Main Street (RoadRUNNER Transit bus route 1, stop 36) and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30, p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For additional information, visit the website at museums.las-cruces.org or call 575/541-2154.
