This grant from Southern California Edison funds a collaboration between the Getty Research Institute and the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) to support development and installation of the exhibition A Nation Emerges: The Mexican Revolution Revealed. The exhibition opened at LAPL on September 8, 2011, and runs through February 23, 2013.

This exhibition includes images and ephemera that document the decade-long Mexican Revolution (1910–20), which transformed the nation. From postcards of the 1910 Fiesta del Centenario and photographs of the 1923 assassination of Pancho Villa to images of a war that was waged on several fronts by ever-shifting revolutionary factions, this exhibition illustrates this complex, multifaceted chapter in Mexico's history.
