Austin Museum Partnership proudly presents the 24th Annual Austin Museum Day! Austin Museum Day is a free, city–wide rediscovery of Austin Museums. The event allows families a unique opportunity to visit and explore the dynamic museum community including local exhibits and activities at over forty-four participating institutions for free!

The Mexic-Arte Museum will conduct a printmaking workshop led by featured MX 21-Resistance, Reaffirmation & Resilience Artist, “Kill Joy”.

About our featured Artist: 
Kill Joy’s work is grounded in honoring the earth and seeking environmental and social justice. It is an interpretation of world mythology and a study of ancient symbols. She integrates story telling with calls to global, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual awareness and action. Kill Joy’s family is originally from and partly based in the archipelago known as the Philippines and partly in Texas. Her work sits at the intersection where jungle meets desert.
