  • Verge Center for the Arts
    Comparisons to New York City's top galleries quickly arose around Verge Center for the Arts when Jesse Powell opened the nonprofit in 2009. It's easy to see why: the 6,000 square feet of exhibition space and 20-foot high ceilings houses a global array of contemporary art in various mediums, from paint and video to performance. But opening a critically acclaimed gallery was only the tip of the iceberg for Jesse. These days, the 22,000-square-foot center houses 37 studios for emergent artists, more than half of which were built by the tenants/artists themselves. Reading materials on contemporary art abound in the center's library, while an in-house lab lets community members create their own prints. Throughout the year, Verge even hosts events and classes that run the gamut from artists lectures to workshops on learning to draw via mind control.

  • Spanglish Arte
    During college, Mari Arreola spent time getting in touch with her Latin roots while travelling throughout the U.S., Guadalajara, Mexico, and Paris, France. Everywhere she went she encountered more Latin culture, until she was thoroughly immersed in its arts and traditions. When she became manager of La Raza Galeria Bookstore, she took that opportunity to bring those kinds of arts to an international stage. Out of this endeavor, Spanglish Arte was born. Acting as the creative director, Mari manages the shop and gallery, hoping to create a hub for local artists?everyone from painters to T-shirt makers. In addition, Mari hosts classes that help students understand and participate in Latin arts. These classes include tutorials on how to make tamales and how to apply makeup for Day of the Dead celebrations?the one day a year when the dead are allowed to be beautiful.
