Our History

Our 33-year history is one of connection and inspiration to Milwaukee’s south-side Hispanic neighborhood and beyond. We have proudly curated and hosted acclaimed performing Latino artists, captivating cultural arts exhibitions and educational opportunities, ensuring community members of all backgrounds feel welcomed to our events and helping to build bridges between a diverse community.

Today, Latino Arts is heralded as a model for arts education and youth development in the urban community.
