Art located inside our walls

Fridays - year long

Explorations in the art forms are a series of art and community building gatherings. We utilize art forms to hold the space for people who are looking to connect with others, explore art forms, or find a place outside the typical Friday night scene.

So, if you are looking for something to do on a Friday night, where you can meet new people, and express yourself creatively without fear of any judgment, consider our "Explorations in the Art Forms" nights. Named after a line from our Rosa Dances with Wolves play, this program has become the banner for Barrio's safe space development and a more intentional way of engaging our community through the arts.

We usually rotate the art forms monthly so please check our Calendar of Events to find what type of art we will have at our next Explorations in the Art event!


If you would like to participate as an artist at an upcoming exploration, please email Natalia Ortiz at
