About the Artist

Ruben Dario Villa is a graphic designer as well as founder of Fúchila Fresheners. His mission is to seek, spread and represent the Chicano and Latino cultura with pride by providing an inviting and unique way to consume art on a daily basis. By pairing attractive designs with the power of scent, one of the strongest senses linked to memory, hes aims to tap into the nostalgia of the iconic imagery and icons of our raza. Fúchila will focus on high-quality design so consumers will hang the scented art pieces with orgullo long after the scent has faded and ultimately re-purpose the air fresheners.

Changarrito cart March 8th

Artists have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as representative for the Museum during various Austin festivals). Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale.

For the launch of the 2018 season, Mexic-Arte Museum featured six Changarrito residencies during the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. On Wednesday, March 8, Celeste Ruben Dario was on hand.
