The Piñata Exhibit (Sure to be a Smash Hit!)

June 23, 2017April 8, 2018

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

The Piñata Exhibit (Sure to be a Smash Hit!) celebrates this popular art form with over 175 examples from Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas and New Mexico. Traditional and iconic works, alongside creations by contemporary piñata artists, illustrate how piñatas maintain their historical and social importance while also reflecting transnational shifts in popular, political, and visual culture.

If you love this exhibit, you’ll also love the new piñata-themed dish towels created by Kei & Molly Textiles. The design comes in six different colors (Raspberry, Green, Turquoise, Navy, Burnt Orange, and Squash), four of which are exclusive to the NHCC! Each dish towel is $12 and 50% of the proceeds benefit the NHCC Art Museum. Get yours today or find out more by contacting Tey Marianna Nunn at tey.nunn@state.nm.us or 505-246-2261.
