Mix ‘n’ Mash: Celebrating Austin Exhibition and Art Sale will be on view from Friday, February 2– March 17, 2024. This group exhibition displays artworks from over 200 local and regional artists created on quality panels donated by Ampersand Art Supply. The art sale not only increases awareness about the visual arts and art collecting in the community, but also provides funding for the Museum’s exhibitions, supports educational programming for children and adults, and sustains upkeep and care of the permanent collection. Artworks may also be purchased through the museum Online Store.
This year’s theme is Celebrating Austin! Austin is the political and historical center of Texas. It is the home to people the world over, coming to participate in its politics, enjoy the beauty of its surrounding hill country, feast on the cuisine that abounds from it, and revel in the live music for which it is famous, among other things. This year Mexic-Arte celebrates the large and small of what makes Austin weird, interesting, timeless, and robust. Austin, home to people from all over the world and the state capital continues to inspire those that come to visit and live here. Mexic-Arte Museum, which has called Austin home for nearly 40 years invites its community to celebrate all things Austin with this year’s Mix ‘n’ Mash exhibition.
Mix ‘n’ Mash:
Mix ‘n’ Mash derived from the terms “mix-and-match” (to combine elements in a harmonious and interesting way) and “mash-up” (a work that blends two or more songs or pieces of art from different genres), Mix ‘n’ Mash is an original concept by Mexic-Arte Museum, which refers not only to the mashing of genres into one work of art, but also to the mixing of work by various artists to create a unique collector’s set.
The professional quality acid-free panels used by the artists are Gessobords, made in Buda, Texas and generously donated by Ampersand Art Supply. Mexic-Arte Museum would like to recognize and thank all the participating artists for their generous donation and support.
