Contemporary folk art by Mexican and Chicano artists mix traditional techniques and new ideas at Polanco, from Artemio Rodriguez's woodcuts of Day of the Dead skeletons sporting Mohawks to Gabriel Mendoza's surrealist retratos (portraits) of professionals literally consumed by their work. Don't miss the Oaxacan devil masks embedded with actual goat's horns, or the Frida Kahlo–esque earrings of silver hands cupping tiny hearts.
