This downtown Dallas center hosts rotating photography, painting, and mixed media exhibits, performing arts events, and community workshops. The vibrant pumpkin hue of the building, designed by world-renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta and his son Victor, sets it apart from its surroundings. Centered on a plaza with a fountain, the modern building evokes traditional Mexican settings. Colorful sculptures decorate the grounds and courtyard, while a mural by Celia Alvarez Munoz titled "Orientations" graces the rotunda.
The multidisciplinary arts center spotlights Latino works, often by local artists. More than 300 events take place annually, some in the gallery or outdoor plaza, and others in the 300-seat theater. Popular annual occasions include the Hecho en Dallas exhibit, celebrating the city's vibrant arts scene, as well as the Posada, a long-standing Latin American tradition taking place just before Christmas.
