The National Museum of Mexican Art hosted a sold-out Copitas de Sol: A Spirited Mixer on Sunday, August 1st with support from HBK. There was something for everyone with the sounds of DJ Fanita Banana, small bites from local restaurants, cocktails and neat pours. Guests also enjoyed games of Loteria and handmade t-shirts from Instituto Gráfico de Chicago.
The National Museum of Art engages audiences in the richness and beauty of Mexican art and culture. Opened in 1987, the museum was established to provide an arts and cultural organization committed to accessibility, education and social justice. The museum sought to provide a positive influence for the local Mexican community as many other art institutions did not address Mexican art. Over the years, the institution has grown, its audience has broadened, and its reach now extends across the United States and beyond.
