The Nasher Museum of Art is reaching out to North Carolina's burgeoning Hispanic population in an unprecedented way, providing information for its exhibition "El Greco to Velazquez" in both Spanish and English.
The Nasher is providing English and Spanish versions of its audio guide, label text and text panels in Spanish for the exhibition, "El Greco to Velazquez: Art During the Reign of Philip III." A Spanish-language brochure is at the printer, and a portion of the Web site is in Spanish.
The El Greco exhibit continues through Nov. 9.
Census Bureau figures released in May showed that more than 638,000 Hispanics lived in North Carolina as of July 1, 2007, a 66.5 percent over July 1, 2000, when that number was just over 383,000.
