An interdisciplinary Chicano/Latino space for art, thought, and activism in San Francisco, CA.
Founded in 1970, the Galeria is a non-profit community-based arts organization whose mission is to foster public awareness and appreciation of Chicano/Latino art and serve as a laboratory where artists can both explore contemporary issues in art, culture and civic society, and advance intercultural dialogue. To implement our mission, the Galeria supports Latino artists in the visual, literary, media and performing art fields whose works explore new aesthetic possibilities for socially committed art.
Come help out at our Sugar Skull Workshops, where children (and adults) come to decorate sugar skulls in Dia de los Muertos tradition. Volunteers will assist with set up, clean up, doors, and helping decorate/manage visitors throughout the shift. Volunteers should be prepared to get messy (glitter, glue, sugar, etc.) and have lots of fun! Workshops are Friday evenings 5-9pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 12-6pm.
