OUR 

HISTORY

Our history begins in the North Side of Denver with the family of a Mexican immigrant and an Irish American who founded an industrial food processing company in Denver in 1972. They became the largest patrons of Latino arts in the region by supporting their artist friends across the city and the Americas.

From housing the Abarca Family Collection to our collaborations and programs, the LCAC is committed to harnessing the creative economy by putting its transformative power in the hands of Artists + Families +  Youth + Educators.

OUR

CULTURAL CAMPUS

The LCAC Cultural Campus will span the Sun Valley and La Alma neighborhoods and become a model for sustainable cultural development.

 

We started in 2018 with Hijos del Sol, an award-winning gift shop that expands the market for Latino hand-made artisan goods that and keeps

money in our communities.

 

We are working to open an intergenerational and interdisciplinary community arts program called

“Las Bodegas” (or warehouses).

Want to get involved in community arts programs that tackle social injustices? Looking to expand your creative side

by taking art classes & workshops? 

 

At the LCAC, you will discover endless opportunities

for experiencing the richness of Latino cultures

through  sights, sounds, and tastes.

OUR

 UNIQUENESS

The LCAC  values bridge the classroom, library, studio and the streets: Arts with a social conscience. Where creativity, excellence, grace and courage are at the intersection of identity, history and social justice.

We believe in ordinary people doing extraordinary things through art + culture + community development.

Art + History + Education are not something distant or that belong in a single institution; rather they personally live on through

every dance move, brush stroke, and musical beat

attuned to the rhythm of freedom and justice.
