Millard Sheets in Mexico, 1932-1942 explores the artist’s works from the early part of his career, during the period when he was developing the art department at Scripps College in Claremont, California. During the decade of the 1930s through the early 1940s, Sheets often made trips to Mexico, the closest locale to Southern California that afforded an opportunity for him to experience another culture. It was this intense interest in the people of other cultures that inspired much of Sheets’ work throughout his career.
