Art Collection Grows by 258

During 2019, the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) Art Museum permanent collection grew by 258 pieces. While some artworks were purchased with the help of the museum’s small acquisitions fund, the majority were generous donations from collectors and artists alike. The mission of the NHCC Art Museum is to collect, preserve, research, exhibit and interpret Hispanic works of art from throughout the world. The collection is home to just under 3,000 artworks. One piece acquired was a retablo titled, “San Miguel Arcángel” (pictured above), created by New Mexico artist Arturo Olivas (1958-2017).
