The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is a renowned artist residency program that supports established and emerging visual artists, writers, composers and interdisciplinary artists from around the world. Housed in a residential prairie-style complex, KHN also hosts a public gallery that showcases the work of Nebraska and regional artists, and is home to the Kimmel Permanent Collection.

Marquez-Barrios has an extended catalog of works that includes compositions for a variety of solo instruments, numerous chamber ensembles, mixed choir, electronics, symphonic band and symphony orchestra. His music has been performed, published and recorded by soloists and ensembles from Latin America, the U.S. and Europe, and his works have received performances at numerous international music festivals.

In April 2021, Marquez-Barrios released his first album, “Solo,” which included compositions created over a period of 14 years. During his residency he plans to work on music for his second album.
