Project Background
On May 6, 2017, San Antonio voters approved the 2017-2022 Bond Program, consisting of six propositions totaling $850 million. The Bond Program funds will be used on various capital improvements projects throughout the city. As part of the Program, $450,000.00 was approved for continued improvements to the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center. The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center (GCAC) is a non-profit, community-based organization located at 1300 Guadalupe Street. Since its founding in 1980, the GCAC's mission has been to preserve, promote and develop the arts and culture of the Latino/Native American heritage through multi-disciplinary programming, such as dance, literature, media, theatre, visual arts and music.

Work will encompass the completion of first floor interior renovations which includes expanding gallery space, adding restrooms, adding electrical power, lighting, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), staging and archival spaces and associated work.
