The National Hispanic Cultural Center, which opened in 2000, presents permanent and visiting exhibitions in its beautirul Art Museum. It sponsors a multitude of events in the visual, performing, and literary arts. Here at the Center visitors learn about Hispanic culture throughtout the world. Our beautiful campus is located along the banks of the Rio Grande in the historic Albuquerque neighborhood of Barelas. As you first enter the campus you will encounter the Torreon which houses a magnificent 4,000 square foot fresco "Mundos de Meztizaje" by Santa Fe artist Frederico Vigil that took ten years to complete. It is open to the public on Sunday afternoons. The Roy E. Disney Center for Performing Arts, opened in 2004, is the finest such facility in New Mexico and houses the Albuquerque Journal Theatre (seating 691), the Bank of America Theatre (seating 250) and the intimate Wells Fargo Auditorium (seating 97). Here you can enjoy symphonic concerts, ballet, live theatre, films, opera, and music of every variety. And when the weather permits there's nothing better than a great evening of music under the stars in the Plaza Mayor. You can plan everything from a wedding to a business meeting to your next special event in one of the National Hispanic Cultural Center's unique facilities, including beautiful outdoor plazas and patios as well as conference, meeting, and banquet rooms. On-site catering services are provided through La Fonda del Bosque restaurant.
