Give to the UAM

The University Art Museum actively works to establish the importance and significance of the visual arts relative to the diverse human values present in a broader community. Through the exhibition, research, and interpretation of original works of art, the University Art Museum supports New Mexico State University’s pedagogical goals and endeavors to educate its audience and raise its awareness to the diverse and valuable experience available in the arts. With the support of our generous donors we are able to offer free programming which includes 6-9 exhibitions annually and numerous educational opportunities for local and visiting audiences in the Borderland, ranging from workshops, performances, and lectures to catalogs and scholarly publications. A donation of support at any level allows the UAM to make a huge impact on the cultural lives of the community of Las Cruces, Southern New Mexico and regionally.
