Showcasing more than 150 examples of artisan craftsmanship and design, Charrería will feature leather work, costumes, textiles, silver, and iron work that illustrates the life of the charro. From work attire to grand gala and etiquette suits, China poblano and Adelita dresses, the exhibition reveals the care and attention to detail that has helped make the charro the keeper of a tradition that dates to the birth of a nation more than 500 years ago.
The Diocese exhibit will showcase three major eras in the diocese's history:
Early Catholic Church: 1492-1914
Founding of the Diocese: 1914-1962
Growing Diocese: 1962-2014
