Description

The Mexican Cultural Institute at San Antonio,Texas, is the permanent cultural representation of the Mexican Government in this city. This Institute has been linked since its beginnings to the cultural life of San Antonio, and so, one of our main tasks is to ensure the growth and strengthening of such link by promoting a direct and active participation of the community.


The creation of the Mexican Cultural Institute is the product of a great effort by the Mexican Government that began in 1958 with the foundation of the "Gallery of Mexican Art” at the General Mexican Consulate of San Antonio, Texas. In 1968 the Mexican Cultural Institute displayed a large amount of examples of Mexican art at the "Hemisfair 1968”; and in 1972 the Mayor of the city of San Antonio presented the Mexican President with the current facilities of the Instituto Cultural de Mexico at San Antonio. This Institute depends directly from the General Office of Cultural Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Over its 50 years of existence at Hemisfair Park, the Mexican Cultural Institute has been able to maintain an important place on the cultural life of San Antonio, thanks to its wide range of events designed to show the many faces of the Mexican culture. For this purpose, the Institute has three galleries, a multiple purpose room and an auditorium that can hold up to 250 people.
