Opened in December of 2015, the Juan R. Fuentes Gallery is named for renowned artist and master printmaker Juan R. Fuentes, who has been a friend to Acción Latina for many years. The lower exterior wall of the gallery features scaled down, exact replicas of several Maya bas-relief masterpieces sculpted by artist Mike Ruiz. 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 Friday, 11AM – 5PM.
Funds that supported creation of our 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.”
– Joaquin Torres, director of the Office of Economic and Workforce Development’s Invest In Neighborhoods initiative
