Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers / Soñadores + Creadores del Cambio Enamel Mug
Museum of Anthropology
This enamel mug is a limited edition part of MOA's current featured exhibition, Xicanx: Dreamers + Changemakers. The fight by Xicanx artists for social justice began generations ago and continues to this day. Their art and their activism remain vital in the movement toward social justice for all. This mug features designs of the Mexican card game, lotería, surrounding MOA's current exhibition title; Xicanx, printed in both English and Spanish on either side.
The Mexican lotería ("lottery") is a popular board game in Mexico and is a large, deeply-rooted part of Mexican culture. As the name implies, winning depends on luck. Lotería is similar to Bingo, but it has characters and objects instead of letters and numbers. Over time, the cards have become symbols of Mexican identity. This mug features the most recognized version of lotería, the “Don Clemente Gallo” rendition, introduced into Mexico in 1887 by the French businessman, Don Clemente Jacques.
The perfect size for a cup of tea or coffee, or a hearty serving of soup by the campfire, this mug will serve many purposes while also looking good!
