Much more than just an art gallery, this place is a vital hub of Chicano, Latino and Native American activity..
Founded in 1972 by students at Sacramento State University and named for Jose Guadalupe Posada, an influential Mexican artist, La Raza Galeria Posada sponsors art exhibitions, workshops, a literary arts program, a film festival and numerous community outreach projects. Other special events include a ceremony for Dia de los Muertos(Day of the Dead) and a Christmas Art Mercado(Market).
Housed in the stunning 1881 Heilbron Mansion (available for receptions and events), the Galeria also has a bookstore, which features an impressive array of literature, crafts and music. From the wealth of Victorian-era architectural details on the outside of the building, to the bounty of artistic talent and passionate activism on display inside, La Raza Galeria Posada is an important community resourceand a terrific place in which to spend a few hours.
