Mexic-Arte Museum is pleased to present a special evening in celebration of new and emerging Latina/o artists and Amplify Austin Day. Emerging Artists: Bash For Cash! is an opportunity to meet up-and-coming artists, many of whom have participated in the Mexic-Arte Museum’s Changarrito Project. The event also serves as an opportunity to donate to the success of the Collections Program through Amplify Austin. The Collections Program benefits young contemporary artists and the preservation and care of their artworks in the Museum’s extensive permanent collection.

Over the past 30 years, the Museum, through gift or donation, commission, or purchase, has acquired the works of art for its permanent collection as part of its mission to collect, preserve and present Mexican, Latino and Latin American art and culture.

Amplify Austin Day
Amplify Austin Day is a 24-hour day of community-wide giving that provides an easy and fun way for the Austin community to donate to nonprofits meeting critical needs. Join us to kick off the fundraising drive! Proceeds support the Museum’s Collections Program, which plans to establish a complete catalog of all artworks from the Museum’s permanent collection and the formation of community programs surrounding the wealth of cultural information found in the collection. Paletas Up! is an exciting pledge drive for the Museum’s Collections Program. Visit AmplifyATX.org for more information.

The Changarrito Project
“Changarrito” is an art vending cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative to the official gallery selections presented by the Mexican cultural authorities. Since 2012, the Mexic-Arte Museum has selected more than 20 artists to participate in the Changarrito Project. Artists set up their works of art on the Changarrito cart outside the museum; everything for sale is accessible in price, and one hundred percent of the sales proceeds go to the artists. True to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s mission, the Changarrito is dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary Mexican, Latina/o, and Latin American art.
