Artists set up their works of art on the Changarrito cart outside the museum; everything for sale is accessible in price, and one hundred percent of the sales proceeds go to the artists. True to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s mission, the Changarrito is dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary Mexican, Latino, and Latin American art.

This month the Mexic-Arte Museum is participating in the West Austin Studio Tour and Tony Perez will be the Changarrito residency artist featured. He is an Austin based graphic designer, screen printer, and local business owner (Ramona Press). Originally from Miami, Indiana, Tony has a BFA from Indiana Wesleyan University, with focuses in graphic design and printmaking. Tony’s creative style is largely reflective of his upbringing in rural, small town, Indiana. He creates conceptual but minimalistic designs, largely relying on simple shapes, lines, and naturally occurring textures. He considers screen printing an art as well as a craft, and considers different techniques from project to project. Tony views screen printing as not just a way to get a design down in physical form, but its an extension of the design and an integral part of a piece as a whole.
