Latinos of Lafayette Lafayette Historic Exhibit

The photography exhibit made possible with the help of Frank Archuleta, Jr., features some of the Latino families who have contributed to Lafayette as veterans, leaders, athletes, activists, and coal miners.  The exhibit gives a small glimpse into the impact and history that Latino families have made in the community.
The Lafayette Public Library and The Collective will continue to accept photos to add to the exhibit.  Please drop of copies of any pictures to include as originals may not be returned.  Include names and dates if possible.  Photos may be delivered to The Collective or the Library.

Our sponsors are National Endowment for the Arts, Colorado Creative Industries, Boulder County Arts
The Collective Community Arts Center will serve as a clearing house for arts and culture, and blend the City’s commitment to honoring Lafayette’s past while moving into the future.  The Collective houses the Arts and Cultural Resources Department.
At The Collective, visitors can engage in the arts through rotating exhibits, historic displays, networking opportunities, arts business development, social themes, lectures, film series, and other arts & culture programs. 
Visitors can come together to express and celebrate the community’s identity through art.  The center’s concept will continue to evolve over time through participant input and public engagement.
