Mix N' Mash is a group exhibition and art sale featuring original works of art created by local, national, and international artists for sale. The theme for this year is the Lotería card game. Lotería, a game of chance similar to Bingo, is played with a set of 54 images printed on a deck of cards. As each card is pulled from the deck, a “caller” cries out a rhyme or riddle that corresponds to each particular image. The more quickly one can identify each icon based on its respective riddle the more successful a player he or she will be.
Mix 'n' Mash not only increases awareness of the visual arts and art collecting in the community, but also provides funding for the museum’s exhibitions department, supports educational programming for children and adults, and sustains upkeep and care of the permanent collection. All works of art are on Gessobords™ generously donated by Ampersand Art Supply.
