The exhibition was curated by the New Mexico Museum of Art as part of the museum’s regional outreach program. Art Across New Mexico uses Native American, Hispanic and European American art to tell the culture history of New Mexico. The exhibition presents highlights from 14,000 years of New Mexico art through high definition photographic reproductions of some of New Mexico’ greatest treasures.

Art Across New Mexico has been generously funded by the New Mexico Humanities Council and Newman’s Own Foundation, and Museum of New Mexico Foundation. The exhibition was curated at the New Mexico Museum of Art by Joseph Traugott, the museum’s curator of twentieth century art.
