cultural gem!

Beautiful space in a kind of rough area. The students, staff and artists at Artes Americanas obviously work very hard to offer a very special art program.

Friends took my husband and me to this museum’s Day of the Dead exhibit and we loved it. They had a good variety of paintings, some by local high school students, of people wearing skull-like makeup or of skulls or skeletons (calaveras) performing daily activities; some, such as one of the “Dead End Band,” showed the humor that is such...

Arte America keeps upping the ante! The exhibits, artists, and music at Night's in the Plaza just keep getting better!

A person can get lost in thought or mesmerized by the beauty surrounding you at Arte Americas. Significant art juxtapositioned with new and creative ethnic-based pieces. Arte is not afraid to experiment--and not afraid to stretch the imagination and boundaries for those who visit. A casual vibe, but, providing the right atmosphere for thinking, learning, conjuring, dreaming and learning. Fresno... More

I like the different art that is displayed. The best part of the whole place is the Tiendita. This is a small store that sells all kinds of crafts from Mexico.

I really enjoyed the visit, it's not that big but it's clean and have good art. The only thing I wish, is Fresno should really get involve more, have the 2 mayor colleges to participate for more art, I don't see why Fresno would spend more money on water parks but not art?? How? And why? I understand we live... More

There is always a creative and original display. I particularly like the annual " Dia de los Muertos" in Oct/Nov.

I'm a member at CMAC (Community Media Access Collaborative) and I can hear the music coming from Arte Americas when they have events there. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Honestly, we just Googled "things to do in Fresno" and ended up being one of the things that came up. My wife wanted to take our 9 year old son to visit a museum, and when we searched for a gallery Artes America came up again. Parking was free, although a little tricky to figure out for our first time... More
