National Museum Of Mexican Art Free Admission Tuesday

Free Admission Tuesday from 10am to 5pm at National Museum of Mexican Art - see INFO below. Carlos Tortolero and a group of Mexican-American teachers first formed the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum in 1982. The museum building in Harrison Park opened in 1987 and was expanded in 2001. The design on the faade of the building was inspired by the friezes of Mitla in Oaxaca, Mexico.The NMMA ran the radio station WRTE 90.5 FM, called Radio Arte, a non-profit, community station from late 1996 to December 30, 2012. In Spring 2011, the museum announced that the radio station and the building it has been in since the late 1990s had been put up for sale due to financial issues. On June 22, 2012, it was announced that Chicago Public Media had purchased the license of WRTE FM. On December 31, 2012, Chicago Public Media took control of the frequency after FCC approval, thus ending its run as the only Latino-owned broadcast station of any kind in the Chicago area.
