The piece was written by Charis Atlas Heelan and included the following museums and art centers: National Hispanic Cultural Center Museum (USA), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (USA), Museo Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (Spain), Tate Britain (England), Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney Opera House (Australia), Hamburger Kunsthalle (Germany), Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (USA), Centre Pompidou (France), MAXXI (Italy). NHCC Executive Director Dr. Estevan Rael-Gálvez states, “We are honored to be mentioned alongside these other prestigious museums from throughout the world. This is a testament to the work that we do at the local, national and international levels. It is also speaks volumes to the work and activity taking place in Albuquerque and New Mexico and places the NHCC, the city and the state in global context in regard to the world of arts and culture.”
