Heart of the Barrio / Corazón del Barrio: reflecting on personal and collective experiences of Latinidad

September 18, 2021 – April 2022

La Casita honors the community of artists, educators, students and families who have been at the heart of the Center’s activity since it opened in 2011. Heart of the Barrio / Corazón del Barrio features over 100 photos, videos, publications, art, and memorabilia collected and preserved by La Casita for the past 10-years. La Casita is the first and only Latinx cultural center of its kind in Central and Upstate NY, representing the rich Latino cultural heritage, values, history and traditions, and at the same time working as an agent of change and advancement for some of the region’s most vulnerable communities.
