FEB 17: Free Community Day

Celebrate the opening of our spring exhibitions during a Free Community Day with extended hours!

In celebration of the opening day of our new spring exhibitions, visit us during a Free Community Day with extended hours. Take this opportunity to explore our two new exhibitions on opening day, Border Crossing: Jami Porter Lara and New Ground: The Southwest of Maria Martinez and Laura Gilpin, along with our newly reinstalled collection.


Border Crossing explores recent work by Albuquerque-based artist Jami Porter Lara, who hand-builds and pit-fires clay sculptures resembling an icon of modernity—the plastic bottle.

New Ground illuminates the midcentury Southwest as a nuanced and dynamic environment in which these two women created art that embodied a distinctively modern aesthetic.
