For nearly 3 decades, we have been activating downtown San Jose and surrounding communities with our unique approach to participatory arts. We are the first hybrid urban arts space in Silicon Valley rooted in the Chicano/Latino experience and are a prominent presence in San José’s SoFA district. We bring together artists, activists, youth, teachers, and local residents in an ongoing dialogue about art, social equity, citizenship-building, and community.

Since 1989 we have organized over 200 visual art exhibitions and performances, promoted the work of over 500 Latino artists, and yearly serve close to 35,000 local residents, youth, and emerging artists through our well-known community arts program.
Our supporters make possible our mission to bring innovative contemporary Latino arts programming to the community:
