Mix ‘n’ Mash: Alimento para el alma / Food for the soul

March 3, 2023 – March 19, 2023

This group exhibition, a selection of artworks (previously known as Mix ‘n’ Mash) explores the theme of food from over 200 artists created on quality panels donated by Ampersand Art Supply.

Food has the ability to lift the spirit and bring communities together. Food traditions are often passed from one generation to the next, bringing us closer to our history and our families. Food preparation also has as much creative potential as any traditional media (painting, drawing, sculpting, etc.)  Austin is home to people from many countries. Mexic-Arte Museum, located in Central Texas and situated so close to the state’s capital, has the opportunity to host people from all over the state, country, and world. These people bring a variety of tastes and food memories with them. In Alimento para el alma / Food for the soul we celebrate the variety of foods interpreted by artists.

We are inviting artists to create one work of art on a 12” x 12” eco-friendly and archival quality Gessobord generously donated by Ampersand.

Opens on Friday, March 3, 2023. This year’s theme is Alimento para el alma / Food for the soul.
