Coinciding with PrintAustin's month long festival, La Huella Magistral: Homage to Master Printmakers spotlights prints in Consejo Gráfico’s third Portfolio Exchange. Each artist pays tribute to a master printmaker who mentored, taught, or inspired them and contributed artwork in their mentor’s preferred medium or recognizable style. Printmakers explore shared social justice issues including the defense of poor or oppressed peoples, a commitment to public education, and solidarity with workers. Mexic-Arte Museum expands on the themes explored in the portfolio by incorporating prints from the Museum’s Permanent Collection.

The annual exhibition will display works by over 200 artists, created on quality panels donated by Ampersand Art Supply. Each limited-edition Mix ‘n’ Mash artwork is uniquely crafted for the exhibition, including a special selection exploring the theme of migration. All proceeds from Mix ‘n’ Mash: Migration support the Museum’s exhibitions, educational programming for children and adults, and the upkeep and care of the Museum's Permanent Collection.
