Xipe Projects 
Latin American Masks and Popular Art
Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

Xipe Projects is a museum and non-profit educational foundation, and is home to the Peter and Roberta Markman collection of Latin American masks and popular art.

The main exhibition hall at Xipe Projects is currently closed for renovations. 

However, please join us on January 16th for the launch of Treasures of the Maya Spirit, an exhibition to be held at the 2014 LA Art Show in downtown Los Angeles. This exhibit will explore the evolution and significance of Maya religion in art and highlight instances in which their most powerful symbols have defined the meeting place of matter and spirit from the third century to the present. 

Exhibition highlights include a nine-foot long stucco sculpture depicting a Crouching Masked Jaguar Dancer from Guatemala's early classic period (ca. 300 AD-600AD), a wonderful selection of Pre-Columbian Ceramics, and several outstanding examples of dance masks and folk saints drawn from the collection of Xipe Projects.

On Display

The exhibition hall at Xipe Projects is currently under renovation. For an appointment to view the collection or to access information from our archive, please email our curator, Dr. Alison Heney directly at: alisonheney1@gmail.com.
