The exhibits at Arte Americas are from artists in our area, some very young artists, and from Los Angeles/Southern California artists and museums. Frank D does an amazing, imaginative job displaying the pieces.

Located in Downtown Fresno on Van Ness Blvd near Divisedero you can find this beautiful little gem as both a art museum and culture center for Hispanic Culture. Beautiful to see and easy to park in the area around.

We enjoyed all the Mexican art when we visited. There are a few floors, with several retail spaces inside. The museums shop is on the 2nd floor. They also hold concerts in the summer outside.

Beautiful space in a kind of rough area. The students, staff and artists at Artes Americanas obviously work very hard to offer a very special art program.
