Upstate NY Latino Artists Directory
The Upstate NY Latino Artists Directory is the exclusive place to be listed if you are a Latino artist or arts organization. Why? Throughout the year, and especially the months leading up to and during Hispanic Heritage Month, local schools, museums, and organizations request lists of Latino artists, musicians and performers like you. By registering in the directory, these requests can be directly referred to listed artists and organizations, thus providing an opportunity for you to reach new audiences.
