When & Where
San Anto Cultural Arts
San Anto Cultural Arts was originally established in ‘93 by community youth as a project of Inner City Development, then became a nonprofit in ‘97. We operate two programs: El Placazo Community Newspaper & Mentor Program, and Community Mural & Public Art Program. Our target demographic is inner city youth ages 9-19 but we impact the entire community and are an incubator for local artists. In 20 years we’ve created 44 murals and published over 150 issues of El Placazo. In 2012, we served 186 youth, painted two murals & published 6 issues of El Placazo. In 2013, we’re projected to triple the number of Participants served (575) & we’ll incorporate other innovative forms of art including our first public sculpture. We have four staff members including two Master artists, 200 volunteers and we commission 5-15 artists/year. Our long-term goals are to build stronger partnerships with the school system and local government to create systemic change for our community.
