This exhibition features artwork from Mexic-Arte’s permanent collection and loans highlighting the rich and under told history of the Chicano Art movement in Austin from the 1960s to the 1980s.
Throughout 2021, Mexico is observing major events in history: the falling of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlán, the invasion by Spain, and the Independence of Mexico. Mexic-Arte Museum presents an exhibition and programs in conjunction with Mexico’s 2021 events.
Mexic-Arte Museum presents the virtual exhibition Life and Experiences in the U.S./Mexico Borderlands, on view now throughout this webpage and the Museum’s CultureConnect platform. In early 2020, Juan Antonio Sandoval Jr. (1946 – 2021), a former reference librarian and subject specialist for art and Chicanx studies at The University of Texas at El Paso, donated his vast collection to Mexic-Arte Museum, which he had amassed over 30 years.
