Fresco_Image3During a visit to Albuquerque this summer, I was lucky enough to see this amazing work while it was still in progress.

This 4,000 sq. ft. fresco is painted inside the Torreon of the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) in Albuquerque by New Mexico artist Frederico Vigil. He spent close to a decade on the project, which shares the story of Hispanic culture through the ancient art of fresco. The mural depicts Hispanic history through historical periods plus significant and iconic people and places.

The fresco will be unveiled October 10, when the NHCC celebrates its 10th birthday .
