"Music from the Land of the Jaguar," an exhibition of rare and unusual musical instruments from the major cultures of the ancient Americas that flourished from 1000 B.C. to the beginning of the Spanish conquest in A.D. 1519, are on view at the University Art Museum through Sept. 5.
Drawn primarily from the permanent collection, the exhibition unites musical instruments of extraordinary rarity with their depictions in different mediums, and explores the connections between musical and ritual iconography in ancient Mesoamerican art.
