Mexic-Arte Museum

419 Congress, 512/480-9373
Established in 1984, Mexic-Arte is still one of the few museums in the U.S. devoted to Mexican and Mexican-American art. Its 20,000 square foot home on the corner of Congress & Fifth includes two galleries in which regularly rotating exhibitions highlight work from the traditional (such as the annual Día de los Muertos commemoration, featuring community altars and a street parade) to the contemporary (the annual “Young Latino Artists” exhibit, prints from the Serie Project). The museum’s unique collaboration with Mexican institutions allows it to present major cultural works rarely seen outside that country.
