About the National Museum of the American Latino Commission:

The 23-member National Museum of the American Latino Commission (the commission) is tasked by Congress to provide a report on the creation of a potential National Museum of the American Latino, which would focus on American Latino life, art, history and culture. The commission members were selected by the president and bi-partisan congressional leaders in 2008 and 2009. The commission will report on possible sites for the museum, potential content, suggested structure/governance and fundraising strategies. The commission also seeks input and feedback from the public on the development and design of the museum; American Latino art, history and culture; potential impact on regional Latino museums; and general interest in the creation of a potential Museum of the American Latino. As part of the commission's work, a series of public forums are being held in six cities throughout the country including: Chicago, IL, Santa Fe, NM, Houston, TX, , Miami, FL, Los Angeles, CA, and New York City, NY. In September 2010, the commission will deliver an official report to Congress with its findings and recommendations. Congress will review the commission findings and make a decision on the viability of a National Museum of the American Latino.
