The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are pleased to premiere Teotihuacan: City of Water, City of Fire, the first major exhibition on Teotihuacan in the U.S. in over 20 years, organized in collaboration with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). The ancient metropolis of Teotihuacan is one of the largest and most important archeological sites in the world. At its peak, Teotihuacan was the cultural, political, economic, and religious center of Mesoamerica, and inhabited by a multiethnic population of more than 100,000 people. This historic exhibition will feature over 200 artifacts and artworks from the site, many recently excavated and on view in the U.S. for the first time.
