Sacramento, CA- La Raza Galería Posada (LRGP), Sacramento’s only non-profit center for Latino/Chicano
and Native American arts and culture announced today that the organization
will move to Miller Regional Park after signing an agreement with the City of Sacramento. La Raza Galería Posada
is currently located in Midtown, Sacramento.
Miller Regional Park is located at the western tip of Broadway on Front Street adjacent to the Sacramento Marina.
The new site will allow significantly enhanced year-round programming, including educational art camps,
outdoor sculptures, movies under the stars and live concerts, as well as the ability to offer artist studios
and future gallery exhibitions. The move, set for spring 2012, coincides with the 40th anniversary of the organization.
“The partnership is a unique and nationally significant move for both La Raza Galería Posada and the City of Sacramento.”
Dave Mitchell, Operations Manager at Department of Parks and Recreation stated. “La Raza Galería Posada will partner
with us at the Miller Park Corp Yard Building, and will be bringing a much needed arts focus to our community to help
fill a gap that budget shortfalls in our Department is not currently able to provide. The vision of Miller Park
becoming an arts hub for Sacramento over time is the right direction for everyone.”
Marie Acosta, LRGP Executive Director said “We couldn’t be more pleased. A partnership with the City offers us
new programming opportunities and the potential to serve a broader community.”
“This move will help preserve the 40 year old legacy of Sacramento’s premier Chicano arts and cultural center”
stated Rudy Cuellar, a founding member of Sacramento’s Royal Chicano Air Force (RCAF), the famous artist collective.
As an artist, I am very happy with the move to Miller Park. It’s the right move at the right time.”
