What's new at MGA:

We are very excited to announce an upcoming concert from the brilliant Gabino Palomares! He is one of Mexico's most prolific and lauded folk singers. His lyrics speak to a wide range of topics, though he is perhaps best known for his protest songs, and folk songs dealing with politics and social issues. So, please mark your calendars and join us for an evening of rousing music, and thought-provoking discussion on Thursday,  March 7th at the Leonel Castillo Community Center. To reserve a seat or for more information, email chano6_@hotmail.com or call 713-575-7080. We look forward to seeing you there!

Take a look at our other recent public art piece: The Mega Molcajete! Located at Leonel Castillo Community Center (2101 South St. Houston, Tx 77009), this massive molcajete (complete with chips and guacamole) stands as a monolithic tribute to the culinary traditions of indigenous Americans, and vibrant food culture in Houston.

Sticking to that theme, we also recently acquired a 35'x20' mural titled Molcajete Cosmico, painted by the brilliant multi-disciplinary artist Nephtali de Leon. The mural is currently divided across 40 separate slabs of sheet rock, but we are in the process of digitally reassembling it so that it can be safely displayed. Read more about this piece here, and be sure to follow us on social media for updates on when you'll be able to see the mural in person.
