A group of respected New Mexico scholars were convened by the National Hispanic Cultural Center to consult directly with Vigil in order to create a list of significant themes and images which could represent Hispanic cultural history spanning the Iberian, Spanish, Mesoamerican and New Mexico heritage. These scholars included Dr. Adrian Bustamante, Dr. Robert Torres, Dr. Robert Himmerich, and Dr. Enrique Lamadrid along with NHCC staff scholars and professionals. Vigil then researched and studied the content in order to build and weave his own visual interpretation of the historical content and cultural layering which he eventually named Mundos de mestizaje.
