Mexican art is renowned for its vibrant colors, bold patterns, and powerful symbolism. Partner with a local gallery, art school, or community group to organize an exhibition featuring works by local Mexican artists. You could also organize a hybrid auction (combining online and in-person), with proceeds benefitting a charity that works with the Mexican community. Add an interactive component by providing a station where people can create their own art pieces using traditional Mexican materials.
