LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes

LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes

Opened in 2011, LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes is a Los Angeles County museum and Smithsonian Institute affiliate that celebrates the past and inspires the future by sharing the untold stories about the history, art and culture of Mexicans, Mexican Americans, and all Latinos in the founding and continuing evolution of Southern California through compelling and culturally enriching exhibitions, educational initiatives, and public programs. Located near the site where Los Angeles was founded in 1781, LA Plaza’s 2.2-acre campus includes two historic and renovated buildings (the Vickrey-Brunswig Building and Plaza House) surrounded by 30,000 square feet of public space that includes an outdoor stage, edible teaching garden, and historic walkway. Nearby LA Plaza Village is a residential-commercial complex constructed in partnership with L.A. County, Trammel Crow and the Cesar Chavez Foundation..
