Welcome to Chicano Park Museum And Cultural Center

 

 

Chicano Park Grand opening.

 

The Chicano Park Museum and Cultural Center (CPMCC) opens its doors to the public and has set its Grand Opening date for Saturday, October 8, 2022. The inaugural exhibition in the museum will be the premiere of a collective historical narrative of Chicano Park and Logan Heights titled, “P.I.L.L.A.R.S.: People In Lucha y Liberación And Resilient Struggle”


The Chicano Park Steering Committee, Chicano Park Museum and Cultural Center, Turning Wheel Project, and The San Diego Foundation collaborated together in effort to honor the community of Barrio/Logan Heights by bringing back events in Chicano Park throughout the summer of 2021. To end our summer events at Chicano Park on a lively note, we welcomed local musicians and artists to perform live music- Red Warriors, Kumeyaay Bird Singers, Professor Pepe Villarino, Elena Izcalli Medina, Mariachi Victoria de San Diego, Angel, DJ Rambo, Carnalismo, and Los Tios. In addition to performances at the Kiosko, we distributed 200 backpacks and school supplies to youth and families, had an art and history exhibit and a free food distribution. One of the highlights from the day was announcing our Chicano Park Scholarship recipients and celebrating our youth! Viva Chicano Park!

“By preserving a history of struggle, we will educate and empower individuals to become agents of change in their own communities.”

The Chicano Park Museum and Cultural Center is open for everyone to enjoy. It is a space where people can communicate openly, create diverse relationships, and take pride in their communities. Through our exhibitions, we educate individuals about Chicana/o, Latina/o, and Indigenous culture and history. We also host a variety of fun educational classes and activities for the public involving a wide range of arts, literature, science and history.
