Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts presents

Arte Latino

curated by Patricia Rodriguez

July 30 - september 12, 2004


Reception: Friday, July 30, from 7:00 to 9:00pm

In the East Wing Gallery, the Sanchez Art Center, in collaboration with the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts in San Francisco, presents Arte Latino” an exhibition curated by Patricia Rodriguez who is the Gallery Director and Curator at the Mission Cultural Center.


Both the Mission Cultural and the Sanchez Art Centers have rich exhibition programs and are two of the most well-known community art centers in the Bay Area. The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (MCCLA) was established in 1977 by artists and community activists with a shared vision to promote, preserve and develop the Latino cultural arts that reflect the living tradition and experiences of Chicano, Central and South American, and Caribbean people. The MCCLA makes the arts accessible as an essential element to community development and well-being. As a community non-profit arts organization, MCCLA prides itself in enriching, in a most unique way, the cultural and artistic life of the Mission, San Francisco, and Bay Area residents as well. In addition to their rich exhibition programs, the Mission Cultural Center presents diverse arts education opportunities for youth and seniors in music, dance, and visual art. MCCLA is nationally recognized for the Mission Grafíca program offering poster and printmaking services to the community along with offering classes in silkscreen, etching and monoprint.


“Arte Latino” will present prints, paintings, drawings and mixed media work by thirty artists who have been involved with the Mission Cultural Center programs over the past several years. Patricia Rodriguez states that Arte Latino” will begin to provide an exchange of culture and art needed to raise the level of understanding of Latino Art and to make art collaboration and sharing of ideas, images, and ways of life exciting to enlighten others.”
