Denver businessman Luis Abarca’s commitment to the arts and culture of his homeland has produced one of the area’s largest private collections of Mexican fine and folk art. Art from the Abarca Family Collection will be on display in the Arvada Center Theater Gallery as the third of three annual fall exhibitions to be sponsored by the Abarca family. Last year’s exhibition was entitled La Mexicana: Female Icons in Mexican Culture and the year’s previous OAXACA: In Living Culture.

This year’s exhibition, Nuestra Cultura: Our People, Our Heritage will contain various categories such art, music, film, dance, literature, sports, food, festivals and religion that highlight the culture and heritage of people of Mexican descent.

The Arvada Center is proud to continue to partner with the Abarca Family as it strengthens a commitment to Colorado’s Mexican community and its culture. Adrianna Abarca, the exhibitions curator states: “With these exhibitions we hope to develop an appreciation and pride of the vast amount, quality and diversity of art produced by people of Mexican descent.”
