If you’ve been to Austin, you’ve probably tasted the Tex-Mex (if not, what the heck were you doing?!), but there’s so much more to know about the capital city’s connection to Mexican, Latino and Latin American art and culture, both historical and contemporary. The best place to start: downtown’s Mexic-Arte museum, where celebrating that deep-seated link—through exhibitions spanning photography, painting, sculpture and generally every artistic medium imaginable, depending on the artist and era—is largely the goal. The museum hosts about 75,000 visitors per year—if you’re in the area, make sure you’re one of ’em!
