1st Annual National Hispanic Cultural Center History Festival
February 21, 2020 - February 22, 2020
In 2020, we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the completion of the famous buon fresco, Mundos de Mestizaje, created by Frederico Vigil in the National Hispanic Cultural Center Torreón.
The first annual NHCC History Festival will take place Friday and Saturday, February 21-22, 2020, and we invite you to join us celebrating Hispanic and Latinx history with this year’s theme, “Mundos de Mestizaje.”All festival events will respond to and engage with the fresco, allowing us to explore Hispanic/Latinx history through the cross-cultural, transnational, and multidisciplinary influences that have created the Hispanic world.
Check out the NHCC History Festival website.
This History and Literary Arts annual event is designed to deepen our knowledge and experience of Hispanic/Latinx history and engage all ages in activities that encourage a sense of history that is alive, exciting, and integral to community life.
