|ABOUT THE JUAN R. FUENTES GALLERY |
Nestled in the heart of San Francisco’s Latino Cultural District at 2958 24th Street, The Juan R. Fuentes Gallery seeks to showcase the work of artists whose work depicts the nuances of Latino life locally, nationally and internationally.
The lower exterior wall of the gallery features scaled down, exact replicas of several Maya bas-relief masterpieces. The gallery is surrounded by the vibrancy of Latino culture that has made this area world-renowned and a popular tourist destination. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – 5 pm.
Funds that supported creation of our new gallery were provided by the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development, Invest in Neighborhoods’ SF Shines Program; the San Francisco Arts Commission; the Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund; and individual donors. Architectural services were provided by Vargas Greenan Architecture. Renovation services were provided by Little Feet Renovation.
“Acción Latina plays an integral role in supporting the Calle 24 Latino Cultural District, a culturally rich and vibrant commercial corridor. Through Mayor Lee’s investment, Acción Latina will continue to be a place where important Latino stories can be shared to inform, educate, and inspire our communities,” said Joaquin Torres, director of Invest In Neighborhoods, an initiative of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
