The building that is now the Cultural Center was named Escuela Pía or Escuela de Cristo. Its patron in 1773 was Francisco Rivero y Gutiérrez, an Indian of Cantabrian origin who founded the first public school in Aguascalientes.
Despite being the first public school in the state it was later abandoned for several years. However, in 2004 it was permanently ceded to the society of Aguascalientes.
What was once a classroom is now a gallery displaying beautiful works of art It also features a walkway where artists delight visitors with their presentations and exhibitions.
