About us

WHAT DO WE DO ?

Some of the things we do with the help of grants and contributions are provide free cultural programs, support new and emerging local artists, steward Hawkins Preserve for the public to enjoy, inform visitors about the rich cultural and recreational assets in our diverse community, support other local nonprofits with a central space to convene, and help to develop career pathways for local youth in arts, culture and heritage tourism.

WHO ARE WE ?

We are a nonprofit 501.c.3 member-supported organization, originally founded in 1987. The mission of the Cortez Center Inc (DBA Cortez Cultural Center) is to provide programs that enrich the lives of our community and its visitors by increasing cultural awareness, promoting the arts, and educating about the area’s history, diversity and natural environment.
