Calendar and Past Events


August - La Cocina, was an exhibit and month long Latinx Artist’s Salon in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Opening on First Thursday, August 4, 2016, La Cocina served as a gallery, theatre, presentation space, and arts incubator for some of Puget Sound’s most dynamic Latino/a/x artists.

Hsipanic Heritage Month - La Sala celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month by honoring one of the many Latino/a/x arts and humanities luminaries working in our Washington State communities. In 2016 we celebrated the work and contributions of Alfredo Arreguin.
