The Latino Cultural Arts Center (LCAC) is building a Cultural Campus in central Denver - in Sun Valley and La Alma Park - que celebra the rich and complex tradiciones encompassing Latinidad:

An evolving heritage that overlaps Indigenous, African, Asian and European identities.


From housing the Abarca Family Collection to our colaboraciones and programas, the LCAC is committed to harnessing the creative economy by putting its transformative power in the hands of

Artistas + Familias + Jóvenes + Educadores.

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 comunidades.


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 change? Looking to expand your creative side

by taking art classes & workshops? 


At the LCAC, you will discover endless oportunidades

for experiencing the richness of Latino cultures

through sights, sounds, and tastes.


The LCAC values bridge the classroom, library, studio and the streets: Arts with a social conscience. Where creatividad, excelencia, gracia y valor are at the intersection of identity, history and social change.

We believe in ordinary people doing extraordinary things through

art + culture + community development.

Arte + Historia + Educación are not something distant

or that belong in a single institution; rather they personally live on through every dance move, brushstroke, and musical beat attuned to the

rhythm of creatividad y cambio social.
