Galería de la Raza Lease Negotiation

Mon 7/18 - Thu 8/18

Galería de la Raza would like to clarify some points about our lease negotiation that have been in the press and social media in the past few days. We understand that articles written about the lease situation may have been confusing and alarming and for that we apologize.

We continue to maintain a positive relationship with our landlord and appreciate the support they have given Galería over the years. We want to be clear that we will continue to operate out of our current historical location. The rental agreement will continue on a month-to-month basis as it has for the past 43 years.

We would like to thank you all for your support and concerns. We sincerely appreciate your willingness to help and commitment to keep Galeria’s mission going.  If circumstances change and as updates become available we will keep you all posted through our newsletter, social media channels and email.  We invite you to stay connected and we hope you will visit us soon.

Queer Icons
Digital Mural by Gabriel García Román
In Queer Icons, Gabriel García Román's most recent body of work, he seeks to aggrandize the image of many in the Queer/Trans communities of Color through a personal and introspective series of photographic and mixed-media works. The subjects in the series are drawn from many facets of the gender and queer spectrum, and these images give visibility to a population that’s generally under-represented in the art world.
