The Latino Museum of History, Art, and Culture has a mission to build an understanding of Latino art and increase the public's knowledge of outstanding art by Latino artists. They focus mainly on contemporary artists. The museum provides a variety of outreach programs, educational services, and exhibits for young and older generations to see and enjoy. Many of the artists are from Mexico, Central and South America. Judy Baca and Fernando Bryce are two artists showcased at the museum.
Los Angeles, California and most particularly Los Angeles County has 60 percent of students with a Latino background. This is only including K through 12 grades. As a result the Latino Museum felt a formation of an English/ Spanish museum was necessary to help these students learn about art through their education center.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 4pm. The museum is found at 514 South Spring Street. Admission depends on the age of the individual, whether they are there for education programs or general admission. Students will find admission is discounted. There is also a discount for residents versus general visitors. Admission is cost effective to help serve the community.
