Latino Arts Project is a first-of-its-kind “pop-up” museum created to bring a meaningful and unique art museum experience in both traditional and innovative spaces.  This institution is designed to bring a greater understanding of Latino art, history, and culture through exhibitions and community programs. In partnership with world-class national and international institutions, the museum has featured rotating shows of Latin American and Latinx artists.

True to its intended “pop-up” museum experience, Latino Arts Project will resurface in different venues from time to time but with the same mission – to create a better understanding of the varied mediums and influences found in the broad category of Latino Art.
