Mexic-Arte Museum is participating with Big Medium in the East Austin Studio Tour by having our art-vending Changarrito cart located at Canopy. Mapache Bear Press will be presenting work for sale there during the EAST weekends. 

Claudia Zapata founded Mapache Bear Press in 2015 to serve as a dedicatory outlet for POC (people of color) and queer artists’ creations. From interviews with punk icons, street art, feminist comics, limited edition art anthologies, and landscape color photography, each paper-based nostalgic montage focuses on the unique perspective of its creator via text and image.

Changarrito is an art vending cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative pop-up art gallery. Faithful to their original, informal spirit, Changarritos exist throughout the world, evolving as forums for the sale of original artwork to the general public, presentation of public programs, special curatorial projects, individual and collective exhibitions.
