The Carmen Lomas Garza Primary Center
2750 Hostetter Street
Los Angeles, CA 90023-4332
In March 2007 the Los Angeles Unified School District Board approved the community’s nomination of the name for their new primary school as the Carmen Lomas Garza Primary Center. This great honor comes as a result of teachers using my children’s bilingual picture books for curriculum development since the first book was published in 1990.
The Carmen Lomas Garza Primary Center is a ten-classroom school that serves approximately 200 pre-kindergarten through second grade students. The majority of the student population is of first, second, and third generation Mexican Americans.
Would you like to see actual artworks on paper by Carmen Lomas Garza? If you are in the central Texas area, you and your relatives, friends, and classmates can visit the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection at The University of Texas at Austin during regular working hours and request to see the artworks in the special collections. The staff will be pleased to show framed and unframed lithograph, etching, and digital prints for your personal viewing at no charge. Appointments aren’t necessary but are appreciated, particularly for groups. For more information, including hours and location, please call 512-495-4520.
