Located at 85 West Newton Street in Boston's historic South End, The Center for Latino Arts (CLA) is a gallery, performance space and working arts education center. The CLA is owned and operated by Inquilinous Boricuas en Accion, a community development corporation that manages the 1,000+ unit Villa Victoria community, a principally Puerto Rican neighborhood, located between Tremont and Washington streets.


The CLA features a rotating gallery that has showcased many of the most preeminent Latino artists in the Boston area, as well as welcoming exhibits in partnership with international artists and through exchanges with national and international galleries.


The CLA includes the Jorge Hernandez Cultural Center, a 400+ capacity performance art space located in the renovated First Lutheran Church, built in 1898. The JHCC hosts a variety of performance series and events, including salsa nights featuring live music with many of Boston’s most exciting salsa bands.
