IN SHORT

The charisma that Marie Thérèse Hermand de Arango radiates so intensely floods every corner of the Museo de Arte Popular’s headquarters. Deeply in love with Mexico, she spent the past 20 years striving for the work of 12 million traditional craftsmen to be recognised, valued and respected. She hopes that her example will inspire young people to preserve the invaluable legacy and beautiful tradition that’s been immortalized in folk culture.
