Now in its third year, and following many years of the Gala del Museo, La Catrina Ball is a spirited annual fundraising event that reminisces the past and recognizes Mexic-Arte Museum’s present accomplishments in visual art and culture. This evening welcomes some of Austin’s greatest luminaries to celebrate the Museum during a night of art, fashion, and philanthropy. Join us this year, as we commemorate thirty-three years in Austin with critically acclaimed exhibitions, award-winning education programs, and unique cultural events that serve the community and schools. In celebration of the 110th Anniversary of Frida Kahlo’s birth, Mexic-Arte Museum pays tribute to Frida Kahlo with this year’s La Catrina Ball – ¡Viva Frida!
