AT THE SANTA PAULA ART MUSEUM
The 1936 Mexican Snapshot Mystery is an exciting whodunit detective story-turned-exhibition. Over 900 vintage photographs - captured by three different photographers while on a 1936 trip through central Mexico - were recently discovered at an estate sale in Santa Paula, California. The journey to discover the truth behind these historic snapshots forms the basis for the exhibit, and museum visitors are invited to play the role of detective alongside the show’s curators.
This exhibition runs through June 11, 2017
Free for Students and Santa Paula Art Museum Members
