¡Aquí Estamos! New Selections from the NHCC Art Museum Permanent Collection
This exhibition features selections from the Art Museum’s permanent collection which currently contains approximately 3000 artworks from around the globe. Each artwork reflects the diversity of the Latina/o/x experience in all of its vibrant creativity. Using a variety of approaches and media, the artists illustrate the complex intersections of identity and demonstrate that there is no one way to create art that exemplifies what it means to be Hispanic, Chicana/o, and/or Latina/o/x.
Every few years, the NHCC Art Museum refreshes its exhibit of artworks that showcase the breadth of the permanent collection. This iteration will present some new twists, a variety of perspectives on the collection, and never seen before artworks!
¡Aquí estamos y no nos vamos! We are here and we are staying!
