Works by local artists that have been collected and added to the museum's permanent collection over the last five years. Runs through 12/18.

How do museums acquire their collections? What makes an artwork, or an artist, worthy of collecting?   These are questions museums face every day and the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) Art Museum is no exception.

“The Art of Acquisition:  New New Mexican Works at the NHCC” features art works that have been collected and added to the museum’s permanent collection over the last five years.  All of the pieces featured in this exhibition are by New Mexican artists or artists living in New Mexico, and their work is displayed in the NHCC Community Gallery which is designed to showcase the artistic contributions of the local community. These acquisitions, like the majority of the NHCC Art Museum permanent collection, were given by artists and collectors and the museum would not be what it is today without the support of our generous donors.

Reception — 2 pm to 4 pm

Tours – 11 am. 1 pm & 3 pm (tours limited to 20 people each)
