The Opening Reception was a huge success! We extend our gratitude to all the artists, members, donors, sponsors, and guests who made this evening possible. Remember to get a closer look at the artwork for free all December! Mix 'n' Mash: Austin Lotería! is a group exhibition and art sale featuring the works of over 200 artists displayed on quality panels donated by Ampersand Art Supply. Each limited-edition Mix ‘n’ Mash piece is uniquely crafted for the exhibition, inspired by an exciting twist on the theme of the Lotería card game: Austin Lotería.
Lotería is a Bingo-style game of chance, first developed in Europe, which made its way from Italy through France and Spain before landing in Mexico at the end of the 18th century.
Nacimientos: Traditional Nativity Scenes from MexicoDecember 4 – January 3, 2015Annex Gallery
Nacimientos: Traditional Nativity Scenes from Mexico presents the tradition of Nacimientos that survives in present-day Mexico as a visual amalgam of indigenous pre-Colombian and Spanish Colonial representations. The exhibition features a rich tradition of handmade Nacimientos from the Museum’s permanent collection and loans from Edwin R. Jordan; many of the nativity scenes depict a reflection of Mexico’s landscape, such as cacti, turkeys, and market scenes. Admission is free all December.
