LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, along with four prestigious nonprofit arts and culture organizations in Southern California, have partnered to form the Latinx Arts Alliance, a collective aimed at advancing, serving, and supporting Latinx art, artists, and culture in greater Los Angeles. A free Virtual Launch event entitled, The Importance of Equitable Inclusion: Amplifying Latinx Art, Artists, and Culture on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 11am, kicks off a month-long series of projects at member institutions as a part of Hispanic Heritage Month. Registration for this event is available at latinxartsallaince.org and Eventbrite.
Launched with the support of an arts grant from Bank of America, the founding members—LA Plaza, Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Self Help Graphics & Art, Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC), and the Vincent Price Art Museum—envision the Alliance as a platform from which they will maximize their collective impact and influence, amplify their audience reach, and serve as an essential strategic partner to promote Latinx art.
The Alliance has also launched a website, LatinxArtsAlliance.org, that will serve as the one-stop destination for easily accessible information about the five Alliance members’ exhibitions and programs, as well as news about their joint projects.
