Founded in 1985, we have worked in partnership with regional institutions and organizations to make the art experience more accessible along the Southwestern borderland. Dedicated to the expression, preservation, promotion, and advancement of our region through the arts, we feature the identity and traditions of our unique experience through contemporary art, music, literature and dance to elevate the voice of our community. JUNTOS organized the El Paso International Mural Conference in 1999, the Hecho en Tejas literary event in 2007, the Juntos Arts and Literature Festival 2010, 2011, 2012 and collaborated with the University of Texas, El Paso ISD, The El Paso Public Library, El Paso Community College and a variety of museums for a wide and varied audience. Featured in Art Books, Literary anthologies and documentaries, many artists exhibit nationally and internationally in major galleries and museums and form part of many permanent museum collections including The El Paso Museum of Art, The San Antonio Museum of Art and The McNay Art Museum. JUNTO was featured in Triumph of Our Communities, the art book published by the Hispanic Research Center of ASU and the Bilingual Press.
