Join the National Museum of Mexican Art’s Board of Trustees at the Gala de Arte on Friday, May 5th, 2023 at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile Hotel.

The National Museum of Mexican Art’s annual benefit is critical in generating funding that ensures our city continues to boast the most significant Mexican art museum in the U.S., the only AAM accredited museum dedicated to Mexican Art. 

All proceeds from the event will support the National Museum of Mexican Art’s mission: to showcase the beauty and richness of Mexican culture by sponsoring events and presenting exhibitions that exemplify the majestic variety of visual and performing arts in the Mexican culture; to develop, conserve and preserve a significant permanent collection of Mexican art; to encourage the professional development of Mexican artists; and, to offer arts-education programs. 

This year we are proud to honor actress Angelica Aragón with the inaugural Sandra Cisneros Award given in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the arts. Angelica Aragón, is a Mexican film, television and stage actress and singer known for her roles on both sides of the border. We will also honor NMMA trustee Douglas A. Doetsch, a Partner with Mayer Brown LLP, where he serves as head of the firm’s Latin America/Caribbean practice, with the Museum’s Legacy Award for his long-standing support of the Museum. he Gala de Arte will be a wonderful black-tie evening; along with mixing and mingling with your fellow supporters, you’ll be treated to fantastic cuisine, live music, and dancing.
