Sofia's Story

Sofia Quintero


The Sofia Quintero Art and Culture Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit Latino art organization founded in 1996 by members of the Mexican American community to support the artistic expressions of the local Latino community. The center was named after Sofia Quintero, the daughter of migrant farm workers who settled in the Toledo area. In her short life, Sofia was the first Latina to be voted into the Toledo Board of Education and was elected President of the Board. Her life was cut short by illness, but her joy of Latino culture, and her determination continues through the efforts of the Sofia Quintero Art & Culture Center, it's board members, and active community members.

Our Vision


SQACC aims to nurture and enhance the creative abilities of all people through an emphasis on Latina  and Latino art and culture. The center serves as an oasis for the neighborhood residents and local artists.
