Phoenix Latino Cultural Center planned
Phoenix Business Journal, July 7, 2009

A Latino arts and cultural center is planned in downtown Phoenix.

Last week, the Phoenix City Council unanimously approved a three-year lease agreement with Advocates for Latin Arts and Culture Consortium Inc.

Once open, the center will present art exhibits, performances, workshops and classes.

The community is invited to a news conference Tuesday at 11 a.m. to learn more about the center. The conference will be held in the space where the center will be, at 147 E. Adams St.

No opening date has been set, but space renovations should begin in the coming months.

“Phoenix is blessed to have a diversity of cultures with roots buried deep in Southwestern soil,” said Mayor Phil Gordon. “The Phoenix Latino Cultural Center is another historic first for this All-America City. I am proud to join with the community for this historic event that will honor Latino art and celebrate the contributions of its artists.”
