Additional Information

Description

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15), the Kimbell Art Museum will offer a selection of programs celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Latin America and Spanish-speaking communities. Visitors can participate in on-site and virtual opportunities, including drop-in art-making activities inspired by the permanent collection, a film series exploring archaeological discoveries in South and Central America, and two dual-language story times on Facebook Live.

Film Series: High Ground, Under Water: Ancient Sites in South and Central America
Archaeologists working at ancient sites in present-day Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, and Bolivia share recent findings about influential cultures that once dominated territories across South and Central America. Spectacular footage—from ceremonial centers perched high in the Andes to sacred underwater caves in the Yucatan—complements expert commentaries on the interconnectedness of humans and environment, religion and state power.
Held in the Kahn Auditorium
Free; no registration required. Space is limited.

Family Activities:
Every weekend of Hispanic Heritage Month, we will celebrate connections with artists and artworks from across the Spanish-speaking world—from ancient Mexico to modern Barcelona! Families are invited to explore gallery connections and create original artworks inspired by Kimbell masterpieces.
