Without planning or realizing it, Casa Mexilio always introduced new ideas, especially those concerning art, artists, and the vacant niches left by the typical and current ‘digital' education.
Providing a venue for students and blossoming artistic talents has been a goal. The ridiculousness of dedicating a night to Alice B Toklas was lost on most who were invited - until they tried the famous recipe and took part in the stimulating conversation del ‘Salon’.
Gertrude and Alice created the world’s very first modern art gallery, with their friends and luminaries such as Picasso, Dalí, Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald. We’ll never reach those heights but we can fill the nights with the best of the past and the current culture.
Merida is unique in offering a banquet of free cultural activities to locals and tourists.
