This year on September 15 & 16, we will be honoring the 10 Year Anniversary of the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center.
The idea of establishing a cultural facility for Latino artists and the community in Austin emerged in the early 1970's. Several local visionaries and artists approached the City of Austin to request support for the development of a Latino focused cultural arts facility.
The festivities begin Friday, September 15 from 6-8pm. We will be hosting a gallery opening exhibit with works by Raul Valdez. The following day of Saturday, September 16 from 3-6pm there will be an open house and tours. Later that evening from 6-10pm, celebrate with us in the plaza which includes live music, dancing and children's activities.
Sep 11-15: Volunteers will be needed the week before to assist our staff with adorning our world class facility
Sep 15: We will need volunteers to assist in the gallery for the exhibit opening reception
Sep 16: Volunteers are needed to assist with set-up/take-down, children's activities, vendor set up and much more!
