On behalf of the Board of Directors, we invite you to join us in celebrating Mexic-Arte Museum at the 4th annual black tie Catrina Ball. Following the remarkable last three years of the Catrina Ball, Mexic-Arte Museum—and the 2018 Catrina Ball Honorary Chairs Alina Flores and Consul General Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, and Co-Chairs Elizabeth Caples Rogers and Michael Torres—are thrilled once again to present the Annual Catrina Ball! This year’s event will take place at the Fairmont Austin’s Congressional Ballroom and will explore Mexico’s indigenous roots by paying tribute to Mayan creation myth of the Hero Twins.

The Catrina Ball will entertain, amaze and delight our guests and patrons. Inspired by José Guadalupe Posada’s famous 1913 zinc etching La Calavera Catrina (“The Elegant Skull”), guests are invited to show off their dramatic Calavera/Día de los Muertos makeup, lush rose crowns, and other inspired couture and fashion. This spirited and artistically-inspired evening has become an annual legacy event of culture and fashion. All proceeds support the Mexic-Arte Museum’s Education and renowned exhibitions. Visit www.mexic-artemuseum.org for sponsorship opportunities and information on the Catrina Ball 2018.
