Convergence X Crossroads: Street Art from the Southwest


This summer, the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) is thrilled to welcome a new art exhibition that celebrates an art form that often goes underappreciated but acts as a great marker of place in so many communities: street art. 

Opening Friday, June 7 at the NHCC Visual Art Museum, Convergence x Crossroads: Street Art from the Southwest highlights the beauty and ingenuity of the street art scenes across the American Southwest and in Northern Mexico. The exhibition explores the webs that connect graffiti art, murals, and practices of placemaking in predominantly Hispanic and Latinx neighborhoods through a collection of more than 90 individual works of art. 

Convergence x Crossroads showcases a wide range of artwork from more than 30 artists who identify as Chicano/a/x, Latino/a/x, Indigenous, and Native American, working in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, California, and Northern Mexico. The more than 90 pieces of art on display vary by medium, from canvas, to painted records, to the adorned hood of a Chevrolet Impala. A blacklight room will showcase a specific artwork from a unique perspective. The work shows the wide variety of mediums, perspectives, and styles that are part of the street art and mural movement in the Southwest. 

Convergence x Crossroads is on view at the NHCC Visual Art Museum through February 23, 2025. Visit to learn more and buy tickets. This exhibition is generously supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
