Aztec Art in NYC is a project of Fordham University's Art History program. It includes an exhibition of student work created in a spring 2017 course, Aztec Art and Architecture. The course was taught by Professor Barbara E. Mundy in collaboration with Katherina Fostano, Visual Resource Curator.

Holding sway over much of Mexico at the beginning of the 16th century, the Aztec empire was brought to collapse by the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1519-21.  Many extraordinary works of Aztec art are found today in public collections in New York City.  To showcase these artworks, Fordham students in the class conducted research and created digital exhibitions on works of art currently on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the American Museum of Natural History, and the National Museum of the American Indian. In working with real artworks and in creating this website, students learned a suite of digital skills as they learned about Aztec art.
