The De Colores Art Show in Santa Paula is one of its proudest achievements. Founded by artist and activist Xavier Montes in 1995, the exhibit celebrates Latino heritage, history, and iconography. Its inclusive theme asks artists to create artwork that reflects both traditional and contemporary Latino themes. Now in its 21st year, the exhibit is a local favorite as it serves to enrich community knowledge and showcase Latino traditions, legacy and culture.
