Guest curated by multitasking muralist, contemporary artist and Gravelmouth proprietor David "Shek" Vega, the 21st edition of Austin's Mexic-Arte Museum's Young Latino Artists (YLA) exhibition features works by Vanessa Centeno (New Orleans), Justo Cisneros (San Antonio), Essentials Collective (Austin), Hatziel Flores (Dallas), Destiny Mata (New York), James Medrano (San Antonio), Christopher Montoya (San Antonio), Jaime “Flan” Munoz (Los Angeles), Zeke Peña (El Paso), Daniela Riojas (San Antonio) and Larry Servin (San Antonio). Titled "Amexican@," the San Antonio-centric group show even spills outside, where Vega and neighboring gallerist Joe De La Cruz (of Silkwörm Studio and Gallery) graced the museum's exterior wall with a pair of bilingual murals.
