Mexic-Arte Museum


Mexic-Arte Museum was founded in 1984 by artists Sylvia Orozco, Sam Coronado, and Pio Pulido in the Arts Warehouse, in downtown Austin, to share the art and culture of Mexico with Texas. Starting with the Day of the Dead festival in the fall of 1984, the museum began offering outstanding cultural programs and obtained its non-profit status during the 1984 season. Since then, it has continued to present art by the finest established and emerging artists from the United States, Mexico and Latin America.

Mission Statement

Mexic-Arte Museum is dedicated to cultural enrichment and education through the collection, preservation and presentation of traditional and contemporary Mexican, Latino, and Latin American art and culture to promote dialogue and develop understanding for visitors of all ages.
