Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts

  • 8 people are interested

The Mission Cultural center for Latino Arts (MCCLA) was originally called the Palmeto Museum, Originated in the early seventies by a group of San Francisco State University students who were frustrated with the lack of Chicano - Latino cultural representation and to promote Latino cultural expression, awareness and growth of the Mission District. These students and some community artist petitioned the city of San Francisco to purchased the old Shaff’s Furniture store located at 2868 Mission which became the Palmeto Museum at the same time three other buildings were purchased for the San Francisco Arts Commission, the Western Addition Cultural Center, the South of Market Cultural Center, and the Bay View Opera House.

MCCLA is seeking volunteers to assist during events year round. Some of the volunteer opportunities are ushering, bartending, admissions and merchandise sells.

Volunteers will learn about Latino Arts & Culture and its role in the community. Great for people who want to share culture and arts to others in a meaningful way. Also, great for people who want to be involved with promoting local artists.
