AAFSW Program: Virtual Tour of the Mexican Cultural Institute

AAFSW and W2W cordially invite you to a virtual guided tour to the elegant, beautiful, and historic Mexican Cultural Institute on Monday, April 26, at 11:00 am Eastern Time.

The Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington, D.C. is a magnificent and Historic Site in DC, it was designed in the European Style around 1909-1910 by the prestigious architects Nathan Wyeth for Mr. Franklin MacVeagh Secretary of the Treasury under the administration of President William Taft and is an example of the Beaux Arts architectural tradition.

In 1921, the mansion in 16th Street was purchased by the Mexican Government to house the Embassy of Mexico in the United States and the Official Ambassador’s Residence. After six decades when the embassy and the ambassador residence were re-located, the Mexican Cultural Institute was established on this historic and amazing Mansion.  The interior of the Mansion has different styles and spectacular Art murals by Roberto Cueva del Río, describing the Mexican History and traditions.

Please RSVP by Thursday, April 22 to office@aafsw.org to send you the Zoom Link.

We look forward to seeing you.
