Please join Xico’s Board of Directors, along with Premier sponsor Bank of America, for “MēXico – Lindo y Querido.” Embrace the inspiration of the beloved Mariachi song as we celebrate Mexican art and culture and reflect on what Xico means to you. Interpret the theme by donning attire inspired by the rich tapestry of Mexican regions, from Oaxaca’s vibrant palettes to Jalisco’s elegance, Yucatán’s simplicity and beyond. Business attire is also welcome.

Immerse yourself in this unique experience with a signature dinner, art auction, and the prestigious Virginia E. Cárdenas Arts Advocate Award presentation. The 2024 award will honor Ruben E. Alvarez for his impactful contributions to Xico and the Phoenix arts community.

This evening unites artists, businesses, and enthusiasts, celebrating Mexico’s cultural diversity and supporting the flourishing of indigenous arts and cultures.
