Pilar Perez - OPC Puerto Vallarta

May 22, 2017

The Cultural Projects Office (OPC) will be three years old on May 27th and are looking forward to an exciting future... but they can only expand and grow with your help.

OPC has been offered an incredible opportunity by the Barlow family to expand into the adjacent building which would allow us to offer a greater range of cultural and educational services to our public. This will be a multi-functional space for workshops, an art and architecture reading room, a place for lectures, and student exhibitions. It will also serve as a center for youth summer workshops for Vallarta's local teens. A perfect place for the 5 months when we have to move out of our beautiful garden for the rainy season.

OPC needs to raise $2,000 USD to renovate the new space with drywall, new electrical, paint, air conditioning, and furniture. Please consider an anniversary gift to OPC and help us strengthen the civic and cultural bonds in our beautiful community of Puerto Vallarta. Be a part of positive change in Puerto Vallarta.

Gifts and donations of any size are welcome. Donations to ETINA, OPC's fiscal receiver, are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. ETINA is a 501[c](3) non-profit charity, exempt from federal income tax. The tax-ID number is 95-4658841.

In just 3 short years, OPC has become one of the top cultural institutions in Puerto Vallarta. Since opening on May 28, 2014, OPC has presented 12 successful exhibitions, hosted numerous lectures by visiting artists and curators, initiated a very-well received educational workshop for children, and participated in annual events in the city. And this year we opened our garden to the public for music and literary events. OPC has an incredible 2017-2018 season planned with both national and international exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, curator-led gallery walk throughs, and youth workshops.

If you want to help build the new workshop, please visit and donate to their fundraiser. Visit OPC in Calle Juárez 598, Colonia Centro in Puerto Vallarta. For more information visit

OPC cumplirá tres años el próximo 27 de mayo y nos emociona el interesante futuro a venir...pero sólo podemos expandirnos y crecer con tu ayuda.

OPC ha recibido la increíble oportunidad de ampliarse hacia el edificio adyacente, lo cual nos permitirá ofrecer un rango más amplio de servicios culturales y educativos a nuestro público. Este será un espacio multi funcional para talleres, una sala de lectura de arte y arquitectura, un lugar para conferencias y exhibiciones de estudiantes. También servirá como un centro para talleres de verano para los jóvenes locales.

Sé parte de un cambio positivo en Puerto Vallarta. OPC necesita recaudar $2,000USD para renovar el nuevo espacio con paneles de yeso, nueva electricidad, pintura, aire acondicionado y mobiliario.

Por favor considera un regalo de aniversario a OPC y ayúdanos a fortalecer los lazos cívicos y culturales en nuestra hermosa comunidad de Puerto Vallarta.

Regalos y donativos de cualquier tamaño son bienvenidos.
