New Mexico Museum of Art
Welcome to the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Santa Fe art museum that is one of four state-run museums.
Inside the museum, your group will find an expansive collection of contemporary regional art and photography, the art within shedding light on the region's history, culture, and traditions. The museum was first established in 1917, built in the Pueblo Revival architectural style by Issac Hamilton and William Rapp. The structure blends the new with the old, creating a unique modernistic old-world adobe blend.
You will see various changing exhibits during your visit to the New Mexico Museum of Art, some exhibit examples being Southwest Rising: Contemporary Art and the Legacy of Elaine Horwitch and A Fiery Light: Will Shuster's New Mexico. There are museum offshoots related to the New Mexico Museum of Art you can visit as well, such as the Governor's Gallery on the 4th floor of the New Mexico State Capitol, as well as the upcoming Vladem Contemporary.
Groups who visit the museum can take docent-led tours, free school group tours, or Art Walking Tours (April - November). School groups will have tours and activities that meet curriculum standards, the museum embracing the idea that 'New Mexico art tells New Mexico history'.
