This web exhibition is the result of an internship by Kate DeMeester, a School of Information and Library Resources student during Fall 2003. The production of this website was truly a team effort and would not have been possible without the patience and expertise of several people at the Arizona State Museum:

Diane Dittemore, Ethnographic Collections Curator, functioned as the site advisor for this independent study.

Tin shrine
Tin Nicho with Virgen de Soledad, 1950
Gift of Lisa Painter, from the Estate of Muriel Thayer Painter

Jannelle Weakly, Museum Photographer, took all the photos and served as the Photoshop expert.

Laura LePere, Webmaster, consulted with all the technical aspects of the site.

Rhod Lauffer, Exhibits Specialist, is the artist who drew Frida.

This web exhibition was updated in 2004 by Laura LePere to include detail images of the textiles from the Cordry Collection. Special thanks to volunteer, Xinyu Zhang for her assistance with the update. Laura updated the web exhibition again in 2011 to improve appearance in newer browsers and monitors and to make use of newer web technology.
