About AAPAC

The African American Performing Arts Center Foundation is New Mexico’s only art foundation supporting an African American performing arts center and exhibit hall.

The Mission & Goal of AAPAC

  • Our History

    The Performing Arts Center was officially opened in 2007 due to the hard work and countless hours of many state officials and community members.

    Construction of the center was made possible through legislative funding secured by Representative Sheryl Williams Stapleton and Governor Bill Richardson. After opening, Governor Richardson declared June 9, African American Performing Arts Center Day across New Mexico.

  • Our Mission

    The mission of the African American Performing Arts Center and Exhibit Hall is to preserve, nurture and support the intellectual and cultural history of African Americans in New Mexico and the Southwest.

  • Our Goal

    Our goal is to promote visual and performing arts that support African American Culture; and to sponsor scholastic and technological programs and projects that advance the research and preservation of the intellectual and cultural history of African Americans.
