The Latino Arts festival provides an opportunity for Latino artists, through the various mediums, to share their works with the community, an option of this level not typically afforded to them. It features the work of local Latino artists who represent visual art, music, lowrider builders/artists and youth art.
The artists will introduce concepts that influence, educate and celebrate family and community thru Latino art and culture. The festival is free and open to the public.
The Latino Arts Festival is the culmination of a project spearheaded by the Downtown Shareholders of Kansas City, Kansas, El Centro, Inc., One of a Kind Paint & Body, and Deanna Munoz (Individual contributor).
This year's festival is September 22 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM in the Unified Government Parking lot across from Downtown's Hilton Garden Inn. For additional information and updates, visit the 2018 Latino Arts Fest & Car Show website.
