Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve

May 17, 2019October 17, 2021

This exciting exhibit features approximately fifty works of art from the Joyce Kaser Collection. Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve examines the various ways in which New Mexican artists and others visually portray these two famous figures as well as the flora and fauna in their surroundings.  For example, how many apples are featured, or are they pomegranates? Is the serpent male or female? Is it animal or human, or half and half? Is Eve always the instigator or is Adam assuming some responsibility? Situated in the NHCC Art Museum’s highly popular community gallery, Southwest of Eden invites the visitor to take a closer look at the imagery, symbolism and story of what happened in the garden.

Every few years, the NHCC Art Museum refreshes its exhibit of artworks that showcase the breadth of the permanent collection. As always, the artworks featured in Aquí Estamos are global in scope and reflect the complexity of the Hispanic experience demonstrating that there is no one way to create art that exemplifies what it means to be Hispanic, Chicana/o, Latinx, and/or Latin American.

Mira, Mira On the Wall: Reflecting on 20 Years of Exhibitions

May 14, 2021January 2, 2022

The National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) turned twenty years old in 2020 and the museum now has twenty years of exhibitions to reflect on and learn from. Mira Mira On the Wall: Reflecting on 20 Years of Exhibitions recounts a selection of exhibits that have been presented over the last two decades. It examines their impact on the permanent collection, the importance of the stories that have been told, and celebrates the artists that have participated in shaping the identity of the museum over the years. These exhibitions have worked to expand a collective understanding of American art and identity through the lens of Hispanic, Chicana/o, Latinx, and Latin American creative expression.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the opening of Mira Mira on the Wall in the museum was postponed and a selection of artworks were presented online in a virtual exhibit. We are excited to present the full exhibition with additional artworks in the museum itself in 2021!
