¡Mira! The National Hispanic Cultural Center Turns 20!

March 13, 2020December 31, 2021

¡Mira! The National Hispanic Cultural Center is turning twenty years this year! Our anniversary year offers us the opportunity for 20/20 vision, as we look back at what we’ve accomplished and set our sights on the future. Over the years, the NHCC has shared thousands of stories showcasing art, history, literature, and performance that celebrate Hispanic culture in New Mexico, the United States, and around the world. We are honored to have been able to do this in collaboration with our many partners and supporters as well as the communities we serve. As we look forward to the next 20 years, we are excited to continue learning from all of you, our friends, visitors, and patrons. You have been instrumental in our growth over the past two decades.

Every event at the NHCC this year will showcase the type of programming that makes the Center unique. Some will be themed around the idea of 20/20 vision in the year 2020 and will review what the Center has accomplished over the last two decades, highlight favorite moments, and contemplate lessons for the future. The year will also be marked by a social media campaign of fun facts and interviews with staff, patrons, and partners.

Please review the events page for more information about what is happening across our campus this year!

¡HAH! Happy Arte Hour 2020

All events at the NHCC through April 9, 2020 have been cancelled / postponed.
Please call the NHCC at 505-246-2261 for more information.

6- 8 pm (new time!)

This year, in the spirit of the NHCC’s 20th Anniversary, we have invited back some of the artists that have contributed to the success of Happy Arte Hour over the years. Many of these artists were part of past exhibitions or have pieces of art in our permanent collection.

On the first Thursday of the month, NHCC invites adults for artistic fun in a relaxed social setting, which includes snacks, refreshments, and beer & wine for sale from Pop Fizz. This is a great opportunity for friends to hang out, a unique date night option, or a place to come solo and connect with fellow art enthusiasts.

On April 2, Kenny Chavez will join us again for recycled metal art!

Please pre-register HERE (so we know how many materials to prepare). Registration for the following month is available the day after the current program month.

For more information please call or email Elena Baca at 505-246-2261 or ElenaD.Baca@state.nm.us

Free, $5+ donations are encouraged to support the artists & purchase supplies
