LITTLE ROCK, AR.- In conjunction with a city-wide celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, the Arkansas Arts Center will present the exhibition A Century of Revolution: Mexican Art since 1910 September 1 – November 21, 2010. A Century of Revolution is organized by the Arkansas Arts Center and curated by Sarah Holian.

The 1910 Revolution in Mexico was the starting point in a series of struggles that brought political and social change. Each turning point in the conflict prompted a flurry of artistic creativity. A Century of Revolution illustrates these visions for revolution through the renowned collections of Mexican art housed at the University of Texas at Austin and private collections. This exhibition is divided into four themes – A Century of Revolution, Theaters of Revolution, Student Revolutions and Revolutionary Identities. Featured artists include Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, José Guadalupe Posada, Manuel Manilla, Arnold Belkin, Pedro Coronel, Rocio Maldonado, and more.

Guest Curator Sarah Holian earned an Master of Arts in art history from the University of Texas at Austin and is a currently a doctoral candidate in art history at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York where she is specializing in art of the United States and Latin American art. Holian is also a lecturer in the History of Art and Architecture Department at DePaul University.

Several events will be held in conjunction with A Century of Revolution including two lectures, the Mexican Film Festival and the Family Fiesta.
