The NHCC Art Museum has received grant funding to support the professional photography and digital image capture of a collection of approximately 300 hand-painted paños (paintings and drawings on handkerchief cloth), a small selection of 3-D objects, letters and correspondence, and archival materials. Priority will be given to art objects before related archival materials. In total, the collection consists of approximately 1000 individual objects.

Work will be completed on-site at the National Hispanic Cultural Center with photography completed no later than November 1, 2021. Selected photographer will be paid a total, not to exceed, $32,305 in two payments. The first payment of $10,000 will be paid upon invoice approximately half-way through the project, and the remaining balance will be paid upon invoice at the completion of the project.
