Mezcal samples and Mexican folk art tours featured during discussion with Salvador Peribán.
In partnership with Design Philadelphia, Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, an art environment located at 1020 South Street, will host Material Mexico on Thursday, Oct.11 from 6 to 9 p.m. to dive into Mexican craft and discuss its origins, scars and potential.
Salvador Peribán will lead a casual conversation among guests to explore how craft has the potential to reveal the unique fingerprints of the processes and people behind it.
Guests will have the opportunity to receive one-of-a-kind mezcal samples from Peribán, a handblown mezcal glass from Studio Xaquixe in Oaxaca, Mexico, light refreshments from South Philly Barbacoa and Spanish and English guided tours of the Mexican artwork installed throughout the gardens. Additional mezcal will be provided by Dock-Street Spirits.
