Make Music Day - NY

The Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre and Dance Celebrates Make Music Day
Lehman College
participates in global celebration of music making on the longest day of the year

For the past dozen or so years, New York City has celebrated the solstice with a day of free, outdoor music, http://www.makemusicny.org/. Sadly, the Bronx has been historically underrepresented with few opportunities for Bronx residents to participate.

To celebrate Lehman’s 50th anniversary and help make our campus a cultural cornerstone in the borough, we will be participating as a host location for the day. Please join us for a day-long celebration of outdoor music, summer, and community on June 21. The day's performances will include current students, faculty, alumni and community artists.  10 AM to 8:45 PM at the Lehman College Amphitheater. 

About Make Music Day:

Make Music Day is a one-day event where free, live musical performances, opportunities to make music and other musical events take place around the world on the longest day of the year. Musical festivities in New York City are part of a global celebration of music making in over 750 cities inspired by France’s te de la Musique held annually on June 21 and taking place in 800 cities across 120 countries. The daylong, musical free-for-all celebrates music in all its forms, encouraging people to band together and play in free public concerts. This year, more than 65 U.S. cities are organizing Make Music Day celebrations, encompassing thousands of concerts nationwide. Make Music Day is presented by the NAMM Foundation, and coordinated by the Make Music Alliance. For more information, please visit www.makemusicday.org.

Pintando: Colors of Education, at the Lehman College College Art Gallery (Multi-Day Event)

The Lehman College Art Gallery, the Mexican National Commission of Public Textbooks and the Consulate General of Mexico in New York Present  

Pintando: Colors of Education
Masterpieces by renowned 20th-century Mexican artists


On view August 13 – September 22, 2018


For Immediate Release



Reception:  Thursday, September 6, 6:00- 8:30pm  


Lehman College Art Gallery, the Mexican National Commission of Public Textbooks and the Institute for Mexicans Abroad through the Consulate General of Mexico in New York present Pintando: Colors of Education, which features more than three dozen paintings by renowned 20th-century painters based in Mexico. The exhibition, curated by Laura H. Baz
án of the Mexican National Commission of Public Textbooks, includes artists, such as Manuel Felguérez, Leonora Carrington and Jorge González Camarena.


The paintings, widely recognized as treasures of Mexican heritage, were commissioned by The National Commission of Public Textbooks to illustrate the covers of books used in Mexico’s schools.  This special six-week presentation in New York City is the final stop in the United States on an international tour that included showings at the main libraries in Chicago and Los Angeles. The exhibition travels to Colombia, Bogota this fall.


The paintings in Pintando were created between
1960-62 and 1987-88 and present Mexico by depicting its national heroes who led their country’s social movements and struggle for independence. The paintings also show Mexico through landscapes of its countryside and with allegory and symbols that depict the mother country in images that embody civic virtues. The artists, who belonged to the Mexican art movements El Muralismo and La Ruptura, were deeply committed to education and proud of their country.

A related program series, sponsored by the Jamie Lucero Mexican Studies Institute at the City University of New York, based at Lehman College features Mexican and Mexican-American visual artists on September Tuesdays at 1 pm at the Lehman College Art Gallery, Fine Arts Building, 250 Bedford Park Blvd. West.  The programs are free and open to the public.


September 4 - Andrea Arroyo

Women in Mexican Textbooks


Women have played an important role, both as artists and as muses in many works in the exhibition. Arroyo will delve into the fascinating story of the woman who served as models for the book's iconic cover images.


September 11 - Felipe Galindo

Art in Textbooks as a Reflection of the Artistic Panorama in Mexico


Galindo speaks from a personal experience about art movements and cultural policies in Mexico that influenced the images on the covers of student textbooks between 1959 and 1987.


September 18 – Diego Anaya

The Impact of an Image Through Time 


Anaya explores how images linger in our memory without us knowing its origin or purpose, and how we create personal associations that give images our own meaning.


Lehman College Relationship with Mexico


Pintando: Colors of Education
at Lehman College celebrates an agreement signed this year between the college, the Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute, and eight of Mexico’s public universities to lead to more student and faculty exchange opportunities. The Mexican Studies Institute seeks to foster research with and about Mexico and Mexicans in the United States, and encourages collaboration with community-based organizations to support and empower the Mexican immigrant community.


Lehman College has deep ties with the nation of Mexico. In 2013 the college became the only official recipient in the United States of an Olmec Head. The statue—a replica of “The King”—was the first sculpture of its kind to be unearthed in San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán, Veracruz, Mexico in 1964. The replica was a gift from Mexico to celebrate the first anniversary of the Mexican Studies Institute at CUNY and was installed adjacent to Lehman College’s main plaza.

About the
Mexican National Commission of Public Textbooks


The National Commission of Public Textbooks was created on February 12, 1959 during the administration of President Adolfo López Mateos, who believed in education as a tool to consolidate Mexico as an emerging nation. Through the establishment of the National Plan for the Expansion and Improvement of Primary Education in Mexico, known as the Plan of 11 years, the Commission was created with the intention of distributing public textbooks to all corners of Mexico. Thus, Jaime Torres Bodet, Secretary of Education and Martín Luis Guzmán, President of the Commission, began the production of public textbooks in 1960, distributing educational materials to an enrollment of almost 5 million students.


Today the National Commission of Public Textbooks is a decentralized public institution in charge of producing, storing and distributing Public Textbooks and Educational Materials to students enrolled in the Mexican National Educational System and to donate collections of books to the United States of America.

It promotes mutually beneficial relations that contribute to strengthen bridges of understanding between communities, societies and countries.
