Volunteer. Visit. Discover.

MOLAA is a transformative place that fosters creativity, knowledge, and joy. It invites us to connect deeper with the different perspectives and roots of Latin and Latin American art and culture, showcases and studies works from well-known, emerging, and underrepresented artists, and seeks to bridge historical representation inequalities.

Beyond MOLAA’s groundbreaking exhibitions, stunning sculpture garden, and nationally recognized partnerships and outreach programs, the Museum offers an impressive variety of accessible arts education programming and family-friendly cultural festivals. The Museum plays multiple roles for the community it serves, such as a school, a community center, a research site, a library, and an archive of stories and culture.

MOLAA is FREE every Sunday! Your support ensures we can keep our doors open to the community and offer scholarships and other educational opportunities to underserved communities and schools.

Help MOLAA provide scholarship opportunities and access to underserved children and students.
