A highly anticipated exhibit is opening at the Albuquerque Museum.
“Visions of the Hispanic World” includes more than 200 pieces from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library in New York City, all artwork from Spain and Spanish colonies.
The museum director says it highlights the broad impact the Spanish have had around the world and how they brought diverse influences to the Americas.
“So many different people came through Spain leaving their cultural aspects, their celebration of food and music and visual arts and architecture. So Spain really became a microcosm of all of the known world,” says Andrew Connors, Director of the Albuquerque Museum.
Visions of the Hispanic World is a traveling exhibition, making its first U.S. stop in Albuquerque.
It opens Saturday.
