Exhibitions, Education, and Programs

The New Mexico Museum of Art has been hosting exhibitions and engaging the community with special events since 1917. There are many ways to support the museum’s continued efforts to bring innovative exhibitions and educational programs to New Mexico. 

Founded in 1962, the Museum of New Mexico Foundation (MNMF) is one half of a private-public partnership with the state of New Mexico. The state’s Department of Cultural Affairs allocates state funds for building operations and staff salaries. The MNMF (a 501c3 foundation) raises support for educational programs and exhibitions for four state museums in Santa Fe including the New Mexico Museum of Art, eight historic sites statewide, and the Office of Archaeological Studies. 

To support the Museum of Art, you can choose to support one-of-a-kind exhibitions and education programs or leave a meaningful legacy through estate planning

Art, Library, and Archives

The Museum of Art’s collection has continued to evolve over the years through the generous support of our community, many of whom donate works to the Museum. If you are interested in offering a work of art, library, or archive materials to be included in our collection, please contact the appropriate curator or our librarian to see if the materials might fit with our collecting ambitions.
