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.

The second edition of “Learning to Look,” the Kimbell’s free publication dedicated to young art lovers, will premiere during Hispanic Heritage Month. It will highlight an early painting by the Spanish artist Joan Miró, exploring how he used bold colors to express new ideas in his Portrait of Heriberto Casany. “Learning to Look” is offered in both Spanish and English and will be available for pick-up at the museum in fall 2021; a digital edition will be available online. Families can also sign up to join the mailing list to receive future editions:

Hispanic Heritage Month programming is supported by the Nuestro Kimbell committee, which advises and helps shape the Kimbell’s ongoing efforts to foster meaningful, inclusive and accessible museum experiences for all.

The Kimbell Art Museum, owned and operated by the Kimbell Art Foundation, is internationally renowned for both its collections and its architecture. The Kimbell’s collections range in period from antiquity to the 20th century and include European masterpieces by artists such as Fra Angelico, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Bernini, Velázquez, Monet, Cézanne, Picasso and Matisse; important collections of Egyptian and classical antiquities; and the art of Asia, Africa and the Ancient Americas.


The museum’s 1972 building, designed by the American architect Louis I. Kahn, is widely regarded as one of the outstanding architectural achievements of the modern era. A second building, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, opened in 2013 and now provides space for special exhibitions, dedicated classrooms and a 289-seat auditorium with excellent acoustics for music.
