Expressiones is a cultural center with the goal of introducing Latin American culture…More to Southeastern Connecticut and helping to create understanding between people from different backgrounds.
The center offers a wide variety of programs, all free to the community. The art gallery hosts exhibitions and lectures, and collaborates on an artist-in-residence program which brings two artists each year from Latin America to Connecticut. There are art workshops and cuisine demonstrations, poetry readings and film festivals, and Spanish language classes for all levels. Expressiones also runs a bilingual program for children ages 5 to 17, providing arts mentoring and enrichment both during and after school.
