The Trail of the Mexican American Experience in Fort Worth

Created by Arturo Martinez using numerous visual resources from the Fort Worth Public Library and based on Dr. Peter Martinez’s research, this pop-up exhibit demonstrates the deep history of Mexican American’s in Fort Worth. The exhibit of 6 columns (12 panels) showcases the Mexican American experience from 1900 to 1950. Each pillar chronicles key moments that shaped the experiences of Mexican immigrants and highlights their journey from newly arrived laborers, through the building of their communities, and to permanent and active members of the city.
