Mundos de Mestizaje
Located in the Torreon, this 4,000 square foot, concave, buon fresco, was created by Frederico Vigil and completed in 2009. Mundos de Mestizaje depicts thousands of years of Hispanic and pre-Hispanic history highlighting diverse cultural connections between people and places from the Iberian Peninsula to the Americas. A digitized version of the fresco is also available online.
¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte!
¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte! 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.
Located in the first gallery of the Art Museum, ¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte! presents a circulating exhibition of artwork from the NHCC’s permanent collection, which includes works from artists throughout the United States, Latin America, and Spain, as well as from other regions of the Spanish diaspora.
