Posted on


Institute 193, a nonprofit arts organization in Lexington, has partnered with Mely Avila, an artist who lives and works in Mexico City and Oaxaca, for a limited-edition T-shirt.

Born in California in 1985, Avila produces her work in collaboration with Zapotec artisans in Oaxaca, and she’s an active participant in the Center for Digital Culture in Mexico City.

Avila’s design features simple, graphic black lines creating a portrait. The organization has a limited edition of American Apparel round-neck tees with a super-soft feel. The shirt is $25.
