2023 Theme: Alimento para el alma/ Food for the soul
Food has the ability to lift the spirit and bring communities together. Food traditions are often passed from one generation to the next, bringing us closer to our history and our families. Food preparation also has as much creative potential as any traditional media (painting, drawing, sculpting, etc.) Austin is home to people from many countries. Mexic-Arte Museum, located in Central Texas and situated so close to the state´s capital, has the opportunity to host people from all over the state, country, and world. These people bring a variety of tastes and food memories with them. In Alimento para el alma / Food for the soul we celebrate the variety of foods interpreted by artists.
Admission: $10 for Non-members / Free for Museum Members or participating artists + 1 guest
$25 Special Discount on Full Year Individual Memberships at the door only!
