Mexican Folk Art May 17, 2017

At Epcot, in the Mexican Pavilion, we checked out the Mexican Folk Art Gallery.

I loved this Zebra, even if it was sitting down on the job . . .

And we admired the prickly personality of this porcupine . . .

We adored these two Billy Goats . . .

And got a kick out of Chicken Little and his best bud crowing about the sky falling . . .

Some of the art seemed more fanciful than others.  Let’s hope these two dudes exist only in the artist’s over-active imagination . . .

Or Chicken Little will really have something to crow about!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Mexican art = clever, creative, and colorful.

They are charming!! I love the interpretation … and imagination!

Mexican art = clever, creative, colorful . . . and charming! We enjoyed this exhibit.

We’ve outgrown amusement parks but you never outgrow Epcot!

I agree. We won’t renew our season passes when they expire in February, but we have enjoyed our visits to Disney, especially Epcot. We see something “new” every time.

Great pieces! Thanks for sharing, Nancy.

My pleasure. We loved this exhibit. We also enjoyed the museum in Norway with traditional costumes, jewelry, headdress, tools, and instruments on display in an old church.

The chickens are definitely my favourites!

nrhatch - May 17, 2017

They’re a hoot . . . and a hollar! 😀

Latin America does chickens well. Not bad with the lizards either. Cool

We loved this art . . . but as Tippy Gnu noted, they are apt to be dust collectors. That’s why we snapped a photo instead of bringing any home. 😀

They all look like Mexican dust collectors, to me. I guess every culture loves knick-knacks.

nrhatch - May 17, 2017

Can you imagine how time consuming it would be to dust that porcupine . . . a prickly wicket!

8. L. Marie - May 18, 2017

They’re all great! I love seeing folk art.

nrhatch - May 18, 2017

Me too . . . it’s often amusing and fun.

I always liked the Mexican Pavilion. I remember it as being so nicely air-conditioned. And now with fine art, too. How fun.

The Mexican Pavilion is great ~> we love the relaxing boat ride past the diners while being entertained by the antics of The Three Caballeros!

Donald Duck quacks me up!

Thank you so much for sharing your visit to the Mexican Pavilion. I love Mexican folk art–the bright colors and imaginative forms. My favorite nearby store for Mexican folk art has disappeared. I miss it.

Glad you enjoyed, Nicki ~ we used to have friends who lived in El Paso Texas, right on the border. As you can imagine, our visits with them included tequila, tortillas, and . . . . hand blown Mexican glasses.

Oh, the chicken little and his buddy gave me a kick too 😀

nrhatch - May 21, 2017

They clucked me up!

There is so much ‘movement’ in these artworks, Nancy – they’re fabulous!

nrhatch - May 22, 2017

Agreed!

13. Debra - May 24, 2017

Delightful, Nancy! What a fun way to stoke your imagination by observing the imagination of the artists!

nrhatch - May 24, 2017

Folk Art is FUN!
