Join us for Mexic-Arte Museum's Viva Happy Hour, a spirited event where visitors can enjoy the Museum's exhibitions free of admission, and learn more about our history, impact, and Day of the Dead traditions in Austin over specialty cocktails, antojitos, and activities. Additionally, Mexic-Arte Museum will host a conversation with artists, museum educators, and tech professionals exploring the impact of technology in the arts and museum cultures. 

Your support and contributions during our Viva Happy Hour will help us meet our goal to fund three large scale artworks inspired by alebrijes for our Viva la Vida parade in October. Join in on the festivities and help us keep our Artist-In-Residence Education program alive!
