Ernie Garcia has spent a lifetime promoting and supporting the arts in San Bernardino. One of his many projects, has been leading the vision of renovating a historic building, The Garcia Center for the Arts, for the past 5 years. In his role as Director, he has inspired many arts groups to set up home at the center, hosted many cultural events and established a variety of arts classes: printmaking, ceramics, painting, dance, writing.
Beginning this month, Ernie will be transitioning from his role as Director for the Garcia Center for the Arts. He will be handing over those responsibilities to Jorge Osvaldo Heredia, who currently serves as president of the board that oversees the center.
Ernie will continue to be a presence at the Garcia Center, volunteering and sharing valuable input where needed, alongside his wife, Dotti Garcia, and son, Tim Garcia, whose efforts have also greatly contributed to bringing the Garcia Center to life.
Thank you Ernie for your leadership and talents, making the Garcia Center for the Arts a reality.
