Gala Del Museo–Catrina Ball says
This year marks the debut of the Catrina Ball, a black tie masquerade concept event in celebration of Mexico’s beloved La Catrina. La Calavera Catrina (“The Elegant Skull”) is a 1913 zinc etching by Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada and is most often incorporated into artistic manifestations of el Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead). In addition to elegant and adventurous ball dress, guests are encouraged go all out and don Calavera/ Día de los Muertos makeup, masks, lush rose crowns or other themed couture in the style of La Catrina.

The Mexic-Arte Museum, Catrina Ball Co-Chairs Laurel and Edgar Prats and Patricia Vonne, and their event partners aim to truly “keep the spirits alive” with the goal of making the Catrina Ball an annual legacy event and fashion extravaganza attended by Austin’s most influential luminaries and supporters of the arts for years to come. This event supports education & exhibition programs.
