Each year, we produce two to three big exhibits as well as countless smaller shows.
We carefully select the topics, the artists and the curators to maintain our unique focus on Latin American Art and Culture through the ages, from ancient to el presente.

Our goal is to raise $10,000. Can you help us make it there?
Take me to the Fundraiser!

These art shows take a lot of resources! From repainting the entire museum every for every exhibit, to creating custom-zed pedestals, to paying our artists for their hard work, to printing 6′ tall posters to grace our windows- exhibits cost money. Help us fund this important work

This year, we’ve transformed our biggest annual fundraiser into Semana de Museo, a week of online giving opportunities for you to contribute to the Museo that supports the art, culture and community you care about.

Help us Support Diverse Artists

We go out of our way to ensure we’re getting the best, most brilliant emerging talent. $65

Sponsor a coat of paint for us!

We aren’t exaggerating when we say we literally repaint the museum in between every show, floor to ceiling. $50

We’re Proud of our Past Exhibits! Your donation ensures our future is as golden as our past.
