About Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture
The Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture has re-opened! We look forward to welcoming you in person.

Every year our programming features over 20 performances - from Hip Hop, Latin Jazz, Salsa, Chamber Music, Theater, to Dance and more.

As a dynamic force dedicated to the cultural and artistic life of the Bronx and New York City, Hostos plays a central role in providing accessible programs that reflect and celebrate the artistic richness and diversity of our communities.

Named the “the powerful locus of Latino Art” by The New York Times, Hostos Center is recognized nationally as a leader in Latino/a/x and African-based programming.

We look forward to greeting you!
