En el marco del Carnaval de la Mission 2017 “El Corazón de San Pancho”, el Mission Cultural Center reafirma su compromiso con la comunidad por 40 años ininterrumpidos!! La Mission es el Corazón de San Pancho y el MCCLA es el Corazón de la Mission.
Como tal, el Corazón se encarga de bombear la sangre y a todo el cuerpo, en cada palpitar existe una pequeña explosión que contagia al cuerpo de la alegría y la emoción que necesitamos para vivir.
Del mismo modo, durante sus 40 años de existencia, el MCCLA ha sido el catalizador del talento, el arte y el color que contagia toda la Mission y este año queremos compartirlo con todos.
