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.
