The mission of the Hostos Center for the Arts
& Culture is to serve the cultural needs of residents of the South Bronx
and similar inner-city communities who do not have the means or the inclination
to attend arts events in mid-town Manhattan.
In so doing, the Hostos Center strives to create forums in which the cultural
heritages of its audiences - especially Latinos and African-Americans - are
affirmed and nurtured. Its patrons, however, come from all over the
metropolitan area, making the Center an arts institution of regional importance
that is enjoyed by diverse and discerning audiences.
