Garcia Center 20th Anniversary Celebration

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas- The Antonio E. Garcia Arts & Education Center began the month of October with events to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

The events, which were held from October 1-6 at the Center located at 2021 Agnes St., included a Community Resources Fiesta, two evenings of arts and crafts, gallery events, adult diabetes prevention classes, Zumba classes, guest speakers, movie viewings, and more.

“These events help connect students and the community while they learn about the surrounding area,” said Gilda Ramirez, Director of the Garcia Center. “We are trying to honor our founders and supporters by celebrating our local Hispanic heritage.”

The purpose of the celebration was to honor the birthday/cumpleaños of the community Garcia Center and to celebrate Hispanic heritage and arts. The anniversary celebration brought the community closer while educating the area on local Hispanic history. 

The Garcia Arts Education Center is part of the College of Education at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. The Garcia Center offers programs in art, dance, health and nutrition, family support, and literacy at low or no cost to community members, and it hosts widely popular annual cultural events. The Center features a gallery space with rotating exhibits, computer lab, art room, and multipurpose/dance space suitable for any age.
