The Mesoamerica Center housed in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin is proud to announce a new partnership with Ruta Maya Coffee.

“The Maya Meetings and Ruta Maya Coffee are two Austin institutions with strong ties in the Maya world. It’s wonderful to have us working together to promote scholarship, learning and sustainability in the region,” said David Stuart, director of The Mesoamerica center and the Linda and David Schele Chair in the Art and Writing of Mesoamerica.

Ruta Maya Coffee will be partially underwriting the Maya Meetings and programs at Casa Herrera.

"We are very proud to be involved with the Mesoamerica Center at The University of Texas at Austin and to participate in The Maya Meetings and Casa Herrera. We are excited about all the possibilities as well as the bridges to be built between the Mayan Farmer Coops and the Mesoamerica Center" said Tim Sheehan, President of Ruta Maya Coffee.

The Maya Meetings bring scholars and interested individuals together once a year to study and explore the richness of ancient Maya art, archaeology, and writing. Participants enjoy featured lectures, forums, and research workshops, many geared to the study and learning of ancient Maya hieroglyphs. Each year, the meetings alternate between UT Austin and Casa Herrera, UT Austin’s academic and conference center in Antigua, Guatemala.
