About Galería de la Raza:
Galería De La Raza is an interdisciplinary space for art, thought and activism – Galería organizes cutting-edge art exhibitions, as well as multimedia presentations, performances and spoken-word events, screenings, computer-generated murals and educational activities.

Founded in 1970 by local artists active in el Movimiento (the Chicano civil rights moment), Galería is a non-profit, community-based Latino arts organization located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. It is nationally recognized and is one of the Bay Area’s oldest, most well-respected arts organizations. The Galería is an international forum for the examination and expression of concepts central to Latino experiences.

Through art, the Galería addresses issues confronting Latino peoples such as immigration policy, violence, war, family life, spirituality and race politics.

Galería sponsors the following programs and events:

•Exhibitions spanning a wide range of Chicano/Latino art and culture

•The (Re)Generation Program, an interdisciplinary program designed to encourage the development of the next generation of Latino/a artists and cultural workers.

•The Digital Mural Program, a rotating public art project on Galería’s Bryant Street billboard

•Youth Arts Education activities

•Studio 24, is now home to Galeria's Youth Media Lab.
