Family Day with Evelyn Contreras


Date: Sunday, June 24, 2018

Time: 12pm - 5pm

Admission: Free

Join the Education Department at Mexic-Arte Museum for Family Day with YLA 23 artist, Evelyn Contreras. Visitors are invited to a Family Day workshop where they will explore pop-up book techniques and basic wire-circuiting. Come learn about Contreras' artist techniques and take home your very own pop-up card with an embedded UV light to illuminate your fabulous neon art!

With the current immigration issues unfolding in the border region, the Museum will be accepting donations to assist families who are seeking asylum. Proceeds from the day will benefit the CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, who works to provide detained families with services and legal representation in Texas.
