Pepatián was founded in 1983 as an artist collective by Pepon Osorio, Merian Soto, and Patti Bradshaw who were from the Bronx and wanted a South Bronx base for artwork. It quickly earned a reputation for its work that was grounded in the community of the South Bronx and its dedication to Latino artists. From its inception Pepatián reached out to the community and continues to do so through participatory programming and support for artists in a multitude of ways. Currently, it serves its “mandate to reach out to Latino artists and audiences underserved by mainstream institutions through performances, residencies, workshops, panels, arts education, mentoring projects, Q&As, and other programming deeply rooted in the borough” (, 2012).
