Mission Statement

The Clemente Soto Vlez Cultural & Educational Center Inc. is a Puerto Rican/Latino cultural institution that has demonstrated a broad-minded cultural vision and a collaborative philosophy. While CSV’s mission is focused on the cultivation, presentation, and preservation of Puerto Rican and Latino culture, it is equally determined to operate in a multi-cultural and inclusive manner, housing and promoting artists and performance events that fully reflect the cultural diversity of the Lower East Side and the city as a whole.

Description

CSV is housed in the former P.S. 160, designed by architect C.B.J. Snyder in 1897. It was one of over 400 Snyder projects, including 140 schools. Since 1993, CSV has given the Lower East Side and the greater community a place to interact with multiart forms. Exterior renovations funded by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs beginning in July2009 will restore the building’s grandeur.
