By Car
Arte Américas is located at 1630 Van Ness in the heart of Fresno's Cultural Arts District  and easily accessible from all Fresno freeways.  

 For ease and convenience, we suggest that any person unfamiliar with downtown Fresno take all routes to CA-41 and exit Van Ness/Civic Center.    Drive down Van Ness in the direction of Downtown Fresno's landmark buildings, and  Arte Américas is at the  corner of Van Ness and Calaveras. We're across the street from local PBS affiliate KVPT.
The destination will be on your right.  Entrance driveway is on the Van Ness side of building, just past the stoplight.  You can park behind the building, or continue around to the parking lot on the Calaveras Street side of the building. Lots are available to our guests at no cost.  If all spaces are full, you can also park across the street in the large lot at Van Ness/Calaveras.  

There is also metered parking along Van Ness.

By Public Transit

There is a Fresno Area Transit (FAX) bus stop for the 26 (North Palm/Peach) and 28 (Fresno City/Fresno State) routes directly in front of Arte Americas.  On weekdays during business hours the "Fresno City College/Fresno State University" bus departs every 15-20 minutes.
