Free Community Day: May

The first Sunday of the month is Community Day at NMWA!

Visit us on Community Day for FREE admission to the museum—take this opportunity to explore the current exhibitions as well as our newly reinstalled collection.

EXHIBITIONS:

  • 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: The Southwest of Maria Martinez and Laura Gilpin illuminates the midcentury Southwest as a nuanced and dynamic environment in which these two women created art that embodied a distinctively modern aesthetic.
  • Chromatic Scale explores Polly Apfelbaum’s distinctive approach to brightly colored, abstract prints and how it relates to her work in painting, sculpture, and installation.

EVENT:

National Museum of Women in the Arts
