Albuquerque, N.M.--The National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) Art Museum is getting a new entrance during the month of February. In order to maintain safety and protect the artwork, the museum will be closed between January 28 and February 25.

The Art Museum will reopen in time for the opening reception for the upcoming exhibition, Que Chola, which will take place on Friday, March 8, 6-9 p.m.. The last few years have seen a surge in interest in the Chola as a figure and this exhibition will explore this dynamic from a feminist perspective through art and popular culture

During the time the museum is closed, visitors can still see Mundos de Mestizaje, Frederico Vigil’s fresco depicting thousands of years of Hispanic and pre-Hispanic history, every Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 p.m., or by scheduling an appointment: 505-383-4774.
