Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve

May 17, 2019September 27, 2020

This exciting exhibit features approximately fifty works of art from the Joyce Kaser Collection. Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve examines the various ways in which New Mexican artists and others visually portray these two famous figures as well as the flora and fauna in their surroundings.  For example, how many apples are featured, or are they pomegranates? Is the serpent male or female? Is it animal or human, or half and half? Is Eve always the instigator or is Adam assuming some responsibility? Situated in the NHCC Art Museum’s highly popular community gallery, Southwest of Eden invites the visitor to take a closer look at the imagery, symbolism and story of what happened in the garden.

El Perú: Art in the Contemporary Past

September 6, 2019July 26, 2020

El Perú: Art in the Contemporary Past, aims to break down stereotypes of what visitors expect to see in a “Peruvian art exhibit.”  The exhibit celebrates the work of  artists Baldomero Alejos (1924-1976) a photographer from Ayacucho; Ana de Orbegoso, a multimedia artist inspired by the Cuzco School, Pre-Colombian pottery and Peruvian history and identity; Kukuli Velarde, a ceramicist who addresses class racism, and exclusion  in her ceramics, and Lorry Salcedo, a photographer whose striking black and white images connect the Peruvian past to its present.   Each artist explores the Peruvian pre-colonial and colonial past while addressing race, class and inclusion in the contemporary present.  Works include photography, sculpture, ceramics, painting, and multimedia in juxtaposition with examples of their historical antecedents.

¡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

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 June 4, Jocelyn Salas will join us again for a Mixed Media Project!
