The Bosque Gallery at the NHCC

The New Bosque Gallery at National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico will be 730 feet in length (roughly 2 ½ times the size of a football field).  This beautiful open-air gallery space runs along the Bosque Trail to the east of the Rio Grande just south of César Chávez and Dolores Huerta Avenues.

Bosque Gallery exhibitions will be mounted on the exterior wire fencing owned by the NHCC.  Exhibitions rotate between the key program areas, and will include topics supporting the NHCC’s Mission including History and Literary Arts, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts.  The Bosque Gallery exhibits will be accessible, bilingual, and inclusive. The Bosque Trail is highly trafficked with cyclists, joggers, and walkers.  These groups of visitors include families and individuals.

There are 31 re-printable panels (48 x 60 inches each) available for each exhibition. All panels will be hung on exterior fence facing the Bosque Trail. The panels are made from ALU-PANEL, a reusable thin polycarbonate metal substrate. The panels are reusable, meaning that the vinyl printing for each exhibit can be peeled off and the panels can be re-printed with each new project.  The panels have an anti-graffiti coating and can last for many years if handled properly.

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

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 NHCC 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.
