As early as 1914…. “the beginning purpose of organizing a Chamber of Commerce was the power to provide and maintain suitable rooms for the conduct of its business, to acquire, preserve, and disseminate valuable business information, and to promote the interest of trade and increase the facilities of commercial transactions.”
Costumes of the Americas Exhibit: Soul of the Tehuana
The Brownsville Historical Association presents Soul of the Tehuana, a textile and Día De Los Muertos exhibition. Soul of the Tehuana, in part, pays tribute to Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo, through her iconic use of the traditional Tehuana dress. In addition to highlighting the origin of the textiles, the exhibit itself will serve as an altar to Frida Kahlo and implement other customary elements used in celebrating Día De Los Muertos, the Mexican day of the dead holiday. The exhibition will be on display at the Costumes of the Americas Museum from September 5, 2023 through January 5, 2024.
