Association of Hispanic Arts (AHA) is a New York-based non-profit organization founded in 1975 that promotes the work of Hispanic artists.[1] It holds an annual Hispanic Arts Festival in the city,[2] and publishes a quarterly magazine, AHA! Hispanic Arts News.

The organisation won a Mayor's Award of Honor for Arts and Culture from the Mayor of New York David Dinkins in 1992 for its counseling and advocacy of Hispanic artists.[3] In 1995, the group picketed the opening of The Perez Family, a film about Cuban refugees whose cast was mostly non-Hispanic.[4]
