Austin's Mexic-Arte Museum makes a splash with Art + Tequila celebration
What: Art + Tequila
Where: Mexic-Arte Museum
The lowdown: On July 24, which just so happened to be National Tequila Day, guests celebrated the opening of the Herradura Barrel Art Collection at downtown Austin's Mexic-Arte Museum. Art aficionados and tequila fans got a first look at the Herradura exhibit, featuring creative pieces from some of Austin's best artists. Guests mixed and mingled with artists — including 2014 winner VM Fisk — while sampling signature Herradura cocktails and bites from Alcomar.
Attendees were treated to live screen printing and took home prints of an agave plant courtesy of Mexic-Arte Museum. The evening concluded with a full-on dance party as guests danced to the Latin beats of DJ uLOVEi. The Barrel Art Collection is on display at Mexic-Arte through August 23.
