Mexico is a country full of dynamic landmarks, from the specter of busy city life to ancient Mayan structures. Pictured here is small-town Mexico; specifically the Church of Santa Prisca in Taxco de Alarcon, a town in the Guerrero region of Mexico. The busy plaza overflows with diners, townspeople, tourists; even a mariachi.

This charming poster was created by Dong Kingman. Dong Kingman (1911-2000) was a famous Chinese American artist and one of America’s leading artists in watercolors. Born in Oakland, California, to an immigrant family from Hong Kong, he was given the name King Man (in Cantonese, they mean "scenery" and "composition") because of his aspiration to become an artist. He was known as the leading California Style School painter and was famous for his urban and landscape paintings and graphic design work in Hollywood film industry. His works are included by over 50 public and private collections worldwide, including Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Brooklyn Museum; deYoung Museum and Art Institute, Chicago.
