He is a co-founder of the Centro Cultural de la Raza in Balboa Park, a multidisciplinary community-based arts center devoted to producing and preserving Indian, Mexican, and Chicano art and culture. He served as its director from 1970-73, and from 1988-90. Ochoa was a co-initiator of the Chicano Park community murals, an internationally acclaimed public art project. He was also co-founder of the Border Art Workshop/Taller de Arte Fronterizo arts collective (1984-93).
