Horizons: People & Place in New Mexican Art

On display through Nov 25, 2018 at the New Mexico Museum of Art

Drawn primarily from the New Mexico Museum of Art’s extensive collection, Horizons shows the wide and dynamic range of styles, personalities, cultures, and forms that visual creative expression took in the 20th century, and combines to show the heart of a land that became a major center for artistic expression in a remarkable period of human history.

Experience for yourself some the greatest artists who lived and worked in New Mexico in the last century: Robert Henri, Marsden Hartley, John Sloan, Georgia O’Keeffe, Bert Geer Phillips, James Stovall Morris, Victor Higgins, Awa Tsireh, Maria Martinez, Fritz Scholder, Alfred Morang, Cady Wells, Andrew Dasburg, and Gustave Baumann, among many others.

With a contemporary focus since the beginning, the New Mexico Museum of Art has been a progressive advocate for the arts over the past hundred years. Focusing on the museum’s historic collection, Horizons honors our institution’s history as a locus for creativity. This exhibition, including paintings, drawings, prints, and furniture, highlights the impact of the museum in creating an artistic identity for the state.

Major themes will include the founding of the museum, Native arts, a spotlight on Gustave Baumann, 20th century art and community, furniture design in New Mexico, and a selection of work voted on by visitors.
