As chosen by you, here are the most popular stories OF ALL TIME (aka last week). Just in case you missed it.

Starting July 1st, Mexican Modernism art will fill the galleries of the Phoenix Art Museum. Straight from the Blaisten Collection, the exhibit will include works from some of Mexico’s well-known artists between 1910 and 1950. Of the 80 paintings that will be up for viewing, 45 artists including Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and Frida Kahlo will be showcased, as seven artistic themes will be addressed. Quite the show indeed, as it is sure to have a compelling variety of work, illustrating the cultural environment of Mexico during the first half of the 20th century.
