Latinx Art Programs

Anderson Ranch Arts Center is proud to share a new set of programs that will strengthen services to the regional community through Latinx arts and culture offerings.


Courtesy of a significant gift, the Ranch has developed a multi-faceted program with the goal of uniting artists and art enthusiasts around a shared interest in Latinx arts and culture. 

The programming under this initiative includes: 

  • Latinx Visiting Artists Program: two artists are chosen to work in our studios and engage with our community.
  • Educator Workshop: local teachers and community leaders take mini-workshops in our studios with Latinx Visiting Artists, and learn how to apply these practices to their own educational spaces. 
  • Latinx Art Curriculum: lesson plans and units have been developed around the life, work, and artistic journey of the Latinx Visiting Artists. 
  • Community Celebration: a Hispanic Heritage celebration with music, dance, food and culture. 
  • Latinx Youth Summer Workshop Scholarships: program which invites local schools to nominate one current student to participate in an all expenses paid summer workshop.
  • More outreach programs in our Roaring Fork Valley community!

With this programming in place, we invite all members of our community to participate in and enjoy the shared experiences these gatherings provide.
