Compelled by Color presents a selection of photographs highlighting the vibrancy and variety of works from the collection of Victor and Martha Diaz. The Institute of Photographic Arts, founded in Mexico by Mr. and Mrs. Diaz in 1976, ceased operations in 2016 and donated over 750 color photographs to the Museum. Many works were created using the dye-transfer printing process – a technology that has become nearly obsolete since the materials to produce such prints were discontinued in 1994.
