Since The Inception




The idea for EXPO Collective emerges after the founding members host an exhibition in Little Village and are approached with a space in need of artistic elements and environment.


Supporting Artists

EXPO Collective launches as an organization that will support and aid artists through their artistic journey, while at the same time working to make art accessible to the public and elevating the status of art within our communities.



Quetzal Art Fest

The EXPO Collective team decides it's time for something bigger. The decision to develop the Quetzal Art Fest came in 2014, however the first annual event took place in June of 2015.


The Exchange Program

The Exchange Program is developed to teach and workshop with artists about their plans to market themselves. The three-step program focuses on Branding, Collaboration, and Entrepreneurship, elements that the founders felt were missing in traditional educational systems.
