Victor Hurtado is pursuing a BA in art history and a minor in national security studies. As an aspiring architectural preservationist, Victor interned with the Texas Historical Commission in Austin and worked with the Community Heritage Development Division and the Division of Architecture. He delivered a presentation titled U.S. Post Office: A Jewel in the Center of our City at the 3rd Annual Art History Symposium, which focused on the architectural history of El Paso’s iconic downtown post office. In 2017, he joined the Architectural Preservation Committee with the Texas Trost Society; as part of his advocacy, Victor has guided tours of El Paso’s historic architecture in both English and Spanish. His research examines rationales for heritage destruction as well as responses from the international heritage community to halt or mitigate the mistreatment of culture.
