Join the Mexic-Arte Museum on Sunday, August 8th from 1pm – 3pm for a free stencil screen print activity led by Mexic-Arte Museum Education Teaching Artist Selene Bataille and Intern Assistant Amy Anderson. Join us to make paper stencil screen prints inspired by Zeke Peña’s prints ‘Corrido’ and ‘A Nomad in Love’ from the  Juan Antonio Sandoval Jr Collection!

 Zeke Peña was born in Las Cruces, NM in 1983 and raised in El Paso, TX. Peña’s multidisciplinary work explores identity, community, and life on the border. His process often involves community collaboration and engagement.

This event is in collaboration with the Blue Star Museums Program. The Mexic-Arte Museum, a collaborator in the Blue Star Museums program, offers free general admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and up to five family members—including U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserve, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, and NOAA Commissioned Corps—from Armed Services Day through Labor Day. (For all free and discounted military tickets, present ID in person at admissions desk)

This free activity is in conjunction with Mexic-Arte Museum’s current in-person exhibition, Mexico, the Border and Beyond: Selections from the Juan Antonio Sandoval Jr. Collection.
