Fall 2021
While our theaters and art gallery remain closed, the Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture is as active as ever - presenting engaging programs in music, dance, theater, film, and visual arts. Follow us online as we bring you events for the virtual space. Whether on Zoom, Facebook Live or YouTube, the Hostos Center remains dedicated and responsive to the cultural needs of South Bronx residents and neighboring communities. An integral part of Hostos Community College / CUNY since 1982, Hostos Center is recognized nationally as a leader in Latino/a/x and African-based programming, dedicated to the development of emerging artists and the creation of new work.

We want to share some COVID-19 resource listings for artists, non-profit organizations and the general public provided by our partners -- the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Bronx Council on the Arts.

Hostos Center events are sponsored by the Hostos Community College Foundation with funds from the: National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Coalition of Theaters of Color, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, the Howard Gilman Foundation, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, the Office of New York State Assemblyman José Rivera, and the Office of New York City Councilmember Rafael Salamanca, Jr.

Each day will feature “2020 Highlights” of last year’s concerts followed by “2021 Premieres” of new musical performances on the stage of the Hostos Center’s Main Theater. The culminating event will be the premiere of the Vente-Tú Celebration recorded this past summer at the famous Casita de Chema. Each concert will feature top bomba and plena practitioners, musicians, and singers – from Puerto Rico, Chicago, and New York City.
