Mission: Why We Exist
Art is for everyone. We create authentic experiences that foster a deeper understanding and enjoyment of art throughout the State. We work with art and artists to explore the human experience, new ideas, and diverse cultures.
Vision: The Impact We Strive to Have
The New Mexico Museum of Art is a catalyst and showcase for creativity and the enjoyment of art. Artists, learners and community members are empowered to think critically and see a multiplicity of meanings. We bring the art of the world to New Mexico and the art of New Mexico to the world.
The New Mexico Museum of Art began in 1917 as the Art Gallery for the Museum of New Mexico. The building helped establish the Pueblo Spanish Revival architectural style.
