The Alliance will champion a more equitable representation of Latinx art and artists through collaborative initiatives and advocate for Latinx art integration in major civic and cultural events.
The Goals of the Latinx Arts Alliance are to:
LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes
LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes—LA Plaza—is an institution of stories that makes known the role of Mexicans, Mexican Americans, and all Latinos in shaping the past, present, and future of Los Angeles. They share these stories through permanent and changing exhibits, educational initiatives, and a diverse range of public programming.

Self Help Graphics & Art
Self Help Graphics & Art fosters the creation and advancement of new art works by Chicana/o and Latinx artists through experimental and innovative printmaking techniques and other visual art forms. We are an organization rooted in community; and since 1973, have been at the intersection of arts and social justice, providing a home that fosters the creativity and development of local artists. We establish international collaborations and partnerships nation-wide and create world-wide cultural exchanges.
Betty Avila | Executive Director
Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC)
SPARC’s intent is to examine what we choose to memorialize through public art, to devise and innovate excellent art pieces; and ultimately, to provide empowerment through participatory processes to residents and communities excluded from civic debate. SPARC’s works are never simply individually authored endeavors, but rather a collaboration between artists and communities, resulting in art which rises from within the community, rather than being imposed upon it.
Carlos Rogel | Executive Director
Vincent Price Art Museum
The mission of the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College is to serve as a unique educational resource for the diverse audiences of the college and the community through the exhibition, interpretation, collection, and preservation of works in all media of the visual arts.
