ABOUT THE SAM Z. CORONADO GALLERY
The Sam Z. Coronado Gallery honors one of the most important figures in Austin’s Latino arts community. An accomplished visual artist who specialized in printmaking, Coronado was instrumental in establishing many foundational Latino arts organizations, from the Chicano Art Students Association he helped create as a University of Texas student to the Mexic-Arte Museum, the state’s official Mexican and Mexican-American art museum, which he co-founded in 1984 with Sylvia Orozco and Pio Pulido.
Free parking is available to those attending our programs, galleries and special events. A temporary parking pass is available in the main office.
