Amplify Austin Day 2020

Help Make Viva la Vida Parade and Festival 2020 the Best Ever!

Join us on Thursday March 5th and Friday March 6th  from 11:00am to 1:00pm to make your Amplify donation. Proceeds from this year’s Amplify campaign will benefit Viva La Vida –  Texas’ largest and longest-running Day of the Dead festival and parade! The Mexic-Arte team will be stationed outside the Museum to take donations, and inside the gallery to help you with a fun art project where you can design your own “Lo-Teca Azteca”, a dancing skeleton with decorations influenced by indigenous Aztec dress. 

Inspired by the Día de los Muertos parade in Mexico City, Mexic-Arte Museum’s Viva la Vida fest celebrates life in the Austin community, enhancing our collective pride. Your contributions to the Museum during Amplify Austin Day will help us meet our fundraising goal of $5,000, which will contribute to these events:

  • Día de los Muertos Exhibition
  • Viva la Vida Festival
  • Viva la Vida Parade
  • Free Family Day 
  • Artist in Residency

A $10 donation gives you access to the Museum’s galleries- now featuring the Unseen Prints Collection and this year’s Totally Cool, Totally Art exhibits (both closing on March 10th).
A $20 donation gives you access to the Museum’s galleries, plus the “Build your own Lo-Teca Azteca” art activity put on by the Museum’s Education team.

Can’t make it out Thursday or Friday? You can make your donation through the Amplify portal; all donation amounts are accepted and appreciated. Your contribution will help continue to provide the city we love with one of the nation’s largest Day of the Dead Parades. This year’s festival will be bigger and better, all thanks to you!
