Serie Project Inc is an Austin based 501(c)(3) non-profit Latino arts organization that produces, promotes, and exhibits serigraph (silk screen) prints created by established and emerging artists. The Serie Project was originally founded in 1993 by Austin artist Sam Coronado, and has hosted more than 250 residencies to date. The organization offers an Artist in Residence (AIR) program that allows participants to learn the technique and create a limited edition of prints, under the guidance of a Master Printer. Hoping to increase the presence of minorities in the art world, the Serie Project encourages multi-racial participation and two-third of all resident artists are Latino.
On Friday, August 26, Domy Books is hosting a free backyard benefit for Serie Project. Although the event is free, a $5 donation is suggested. There will be drinks, live music and a live screenprinting demo table where a commemorative poster will be available for purchase. The live music performances will come from Austin based indie band Handwrit and San Antonio atmospheric-indie rockers Pop Pistol.
Domy Books is located at 913 E. Cesar Chavez Street. The event begins at 6:00pm and ends at 10:00pm. If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to support Serie Project, you can make donations online all year long via PayPal here.
