Why 26?

Museum Tamal includes the numeral 26 in its logo to acknowledge the 26 different nations or regions in the Western Hemisphere-in Central America, South America, the Hispanic Caribbean, Spain, and the American Southwest-where tamales or other Latin foods are a defining element of the cuisine.

The number 26 symbolizes the pan-cultural, pluralistic spirit of the museum and its continuing efforts to draw connections between diverse peoples through the communal experience of cooking and eating.
