Desde La Cueva del Jaguar – From The Jaguar's Cave
For now, MCCLA, as many other organizations, is waiting to open its doors in the near future. Our re-entry plan includes the deep cleaning and sanitizing of the facilities and workspaces, the adoption of all required health and safety measures; holding multiple conversations with staff, instructors, artists, and participants, about how and when it will be safe to provide adequate spaces, resume programming, and serve the public.
As to programming, MCCLA is currently developing the “Desde la Cueva del Jaguar” (From the Jaguar’s Cave) series concept, as we transition into more online content. The goal will be to curate and showcase an innovative, off the cuff, mix of art/ visual arts workshops, performances, concerts, artist talks and community forums, all in a concise, more intimate format; thus the Jaguar's cave. We invite you to check our calendar of events and enjoy what we have prepared just for you!
As member of our MCCLA family, we wish you all well and safe, and that we keep alert and connected to our communities at these challenging and critical times. Arts & Culture are ESSENTIAL and as such, must be equally nurtured and supported. It’s all our responsibility. Let’s keep in touch until we meet again.
Con mucho Corazón,
Jennie E. Rodriguez, Executive Director

A Cultural Experience Since 1977
The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (MCCLA) was established in 1977 by artists and community activists with a shared vision to promote, preserve and develop the Latino cultural arts that reflect the living tradition and experiences of the Chicano, Central and South American, and Caribbean people. MCCLA makes the arts accessible as an essential element to the community's development and well-being.
