¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte!

March 5, 2017December 31, 2018

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte! celebrates the NHCC Art Museum’s growing permanent collection with a revitalized vibe and a brand new selection of works. This exhibition was a collaborative project as the entire NHCC Visual Arts staff and interns combed through the collection and worked together to decide which pieces should welcome in 2017. This sampling explores the contributions of these artists and how each work can serve as a reminder of the heart that thrives in strong and resilient communities.

The collection contains over 2,500 artworks by Hispanic, Chicana/o, and Latina/o, artists from around the globe most of which have been generously donated to the museum by artists and collectors. It reflects the diversity of Latina/o art and expression in all of its vibrancy, creativity, pointed humor and social consciousness. The National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum exists to support and engage the work of these artists and share their creations and their stories with the broader community.

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.
