National Hispanic Cultural Center
The National Hispanic Cultural Center promotes the events and traditions of hispanic culture with an art museum, library, and store. The center’s art museum tantalizes eyes with a permanent collection full of work from traditional craftspeople and contemporary visionaries. Rotating current exhibitions showcase various collections including installations by Sandra Cisneros, acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street or collections of 200 beautiful clay figurines. Meanwhile, the center’s research library assembles 12,500 titles on Hispanic culture and history, and archives preserve documents in a haven more temperature-controlled than a refrigerator built out of air-conditioners. Exhibits offer glimpses into Hispanic life, such as Visas to Freedom, which recounts the valiant efforts of Spanish diplomats to save Jewish lives during the Holocaust.
