Austin, TX – La Peña presents “Toma Mi Corazon” on Saturday, February 6th, 2010. The 18th annual art exhibit and silent auction fundraiser will be taking place at their gallery space at 227 Congress Avenue in Downtown Austin. The event kicks off at 4:30 pm with a preview party featuring food, drinks, and live music followed by the silent auction at 6:00 pm. Admission to the preview party is $10, which includes entrance to the silent auction. Admission to the silent auction only is $5.
For eighteen years La Peña has invited everyone to “Take My Heart” as hundreds of wooden hearts given out and decorated by artists, children, and many others. Then they are sold in a silent auction where the proceeds from the heart sales are used help support La Peña’s arts and educational programming. Toma Mi Corazón is not only people’s chance to help support La Peña but also own some unique, original artwork. Many hearts are currently on display at La Peña’s gallery and more will continue to come in as the auction approaches.
La Peña is an interdisciplinary cultural and educational organization dedicated to the enhancement of art in all its forms. La Peña's mission is to support artistic development, provide exposure for emerging local visual artists, musicians, poets and other performing artists, and offer Austin’s visitors and residents the full spectrum of traditional and contemporary Latino art.
