Fans of the art in Shaw’s Espita Mezcaleria are set to have the opportunity to buy works from the artists behind it later this month and help a charity in Mexico.

The Mexican restaurant, which opened at 1250 9th St. NW in March, is hosting an art show fundraiser to bring in money for the charity student committee of the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College of Ayotzinapa, where 43 of its students went missing in 2014.

At the May 30 show, Oaxacan artists Yescka and César Chávez are slated to sell 35 of their signed prints, ranging from $80 to $500.

Shaw design firm Swatchroom, which is co-hosting the event, is scheduled to hold the show at its space at 1527 9th St. NW from 6 to 9 p.m.

Espita is planning to have complimentary food and drinks at the free show.

No registration is required to attend. But prospective buyers of “The Last Supper a la Mexicana,” “Punk Frida” and the artists’ other prints should RSVP at [email protected].
