Every year the UAM receives an impressive variety of submissions by both undergraduate and graduate students, highlighting a broad range of materials, methods and ideas. The JSS is an opportunity to acknowledge NMSU’s hard-working students by recognizing their outstanding creativity. This exhibition always attracts a large audience and encourages widespread community support. The 2021 JSS, juried by Texas/Mexico City based curator, writer and scholar, Leslie Moody Castro features a wide range of artworks created by both undergraduate and graduate students from diverse disciplines and various majors across the NMSU main campus.

One of the most exciting components of the JSS is that students are eligible to receive monetary awards. These awards benefit the students by both honoring and encouraging them during this crucial time of growth, development, and training. As usual, the JSS has received significant support from the community, and the UAM is honored to be able to give out at least $5,000 this year.

Please join the UAM on Friday, April 23,  from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m on Zoom. The award ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. The Juried Student Show will be on view in the Contemporary Gallery at the University Art Museum at NMSU from April 23 through May 15, 2021.
