Virtual Exhibition: Qué Chola

October 14, 2020April 23, 2021

Qué Chola was an exhibition at the National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum that opened on March 8, 2019 and closed on August 4, 2019. The exhibition celebrated Cholas and homegirls in art and popular culture as symbols of feminine strength and resilience in the face of racial, gender, and economic adversity.

The exhibition was popular and inspired many meaningful moments of connection. Visitors came from across the nation to show their love and respect for the figure of La Chola and all the powerful women she represents.

Qué Chola Slideshow
This slideshow presents snapshots of the exhibition and its events. We continue to honor the contributions of the artists in the exhibition, those who visited the museum, and those who participated in the programs.
