Institutional History

The Contemporary Spanish Market, also known as the Contemporary Hispanic Market, originated in 1985 through the efforts of Orlando Romero to encourage and promote artistic expression among Hispanic artists. Originally held in the courtyard of the Palace of the Governors for the benefit of the Angélico Chávez History Library, the market outgrew the space and moved to Lincoln Avenue under the auspices of the Organization of Hispanic Artists in 1990. It runs concurrently with the traditional Spanish Market the last weekend of every July. Categories of entries include: sculpture, painting, ceramic art, textile arts, printing arts, and photography.
