The Latino Cultural Arts Center (LCAC) is building a Cultural Campus in central Denver - in Sun Valley and La Alma Park - that celebrates the rich and complex traditions encompassing Latinidad: A shared heritage that overlaps Indigenous, African, Asian and European identities and is constantly evolving.
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.
To Advance and Elevate the Artistic and Intellectual Contributions of Latinos
A Cultural Campus that Inspires Social Change
We aspire to be exceptional anywhere and everywhere.
We co-create across differences, inspiring solidarity and collective action.
We create structural changes that connect families, neighborhoods, artist studios, classrooms, businesses, and service providers.
A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Community Partners
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 change? 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.
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 change.
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, brushstroke, and musical beat attuned to the
rhythm of creativity and social change.
