About

Join Mexic-Arte and the Downtown Austin Alliance on August 3rd from 10am to 12pm at Republic Square for the unveiling of seven beautiful new outdoor banners celebrating the rich history and vibrant future of Republic Square and the 5th Street Mexican Heritage Corridor!

The Downtown Austin Alliance and the Mexic-Arte Museum have partnered to create and install seven banners showcasing the rich history and vibrant future of Republic Square and the 5th Street Mexican Heritage Corridor. This collaboration aims to enhance the cultural appeal of Downtown Austin. Republic Square has been a significant site in Austin for hundreds of years, from its origins as Hemphill Square, one of the city’s four original public squares, in 1839 to its role in the Mexican and Mexican American community. The square has hosted key events in Texas history, city celebrations and daily commerce, continuing today as a vibrant community gathering space that bridges Austin’s past and present.

The artwork featured on the banners were created by Claudia Aparicio Gamund and the project was funded by a heritage grant awarded by the Austin Economic Development Department
