Our Mission is Your Heritage!

Our Mission is Your Heritage!

The mission of the Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery, Inc. is to educate and promote art and culture for current and future generations.

Since the late 1990s, The Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery has been a pioneer in bringing Mexican visual and performing arts to the Stockton community. The Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery continues to enrich the community with art, culture, and educational programs. Dedicated artists, educators, and interested members of the community volunteer their time, and work together to educate the public of the rich tradition, heritage and culture of Mexico.

Some of the many activities that the Mexican Heritage Center and Gallery sponsors and celebrate include: art exhibits by local artists, traditional Mexican holidays such as the Day of the Dead, Nativity scene exhibits, poetry reading, symposiums, and art workshops.

The Mural on Sutter Street

The mural on Sutter Street is completed. Carlos Marquez worked on the mural in the mornings and late afternoons when it was not too hot. Many people have been stopping by
with positive comments. Carlos has even been offered jobs to do other murals! It certainly is a creative addition, and the theme carries out the mission and culture of the Mexican Heritage Center & Gallery.
