Raise A Glass to Artpace

Thanks to the support of our incredible sponsors, the 2017 Happening is now SOLD OUT!

Celebrate The Contemporary Art of Mexico City with Artpace

Artpace depends on the success of our annual Happening to sustain our free and dynamic programming. Artpace’s 2017 Happening “Artpace Celebrates Contemporary Art of Mexico City” will take place on April 8th. This year we will honor the long, rich history of artists and architects from Mexico, as well as highlight the esteemed contemporary artists who have passed through Artpace’s programs. All support given through this unforgettable evening directly benefit Artpace’s residencies, exhibitions, and education efforts. This year, Artpace will honor Eugenio López, President and Founder of Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo, and Carla Stellweg, distinguished scholar.

The Happening will be held on April 8th from 6:30pm-1am at Artpace, 445 N Main Avenue. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, and dancing under the stars on the Artpace Rooftop. It’s the greatest party of the year!
