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