The Northern New Mexico Regional Art Center (NNMRAC) is located on the Plaza de Española where it manages cultural events for the City and operates a gallery, gift shop and visitor's center. NNMRAC also manages the Española Community Arts Education Center where it conducts music and art classes for the community.
