Eagle Man Fundraiser

The Foundation for Las Cruces Museums, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit agency in place to support the City of Las Cruces Museums System, have a unique opportunity to present to you for the betterment of our community: the purchase of “Eagle Man.” Checks may also be sent to PO Box 2783, Las Cruces, NM 88004.

The Foundation for Las Cruces Museums (FLCM) will sponsor a five-course wine dinner at Salud! de Mesilla, 1800 Avenida de Mesilla, beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 21, to raise funds for the foundation’s campaign to keep a sculpture by a world-renowned artist in Las Cruces.

The Eagle Man statue was created to be explored and appreciated visually and tactilely. It is thematically Native American and celebrates the culture, heritage, and artistry integral to our region. This iconic sculpture by Michael Naranjo is currently on loan and resides in the courtyard on Main Street between the Museum of Art and the Branigan Cultural Center.

Michael Naranjo is a world-renowned New Mexico artist and is a Vietnam War Veteran who sustained a combat injury that blinded him. He then became a creator of art that peaks all the senses.


Mr. Naranjo has offered to the Foundation a special price of $63,000. We are soliciting pledges from the community and donors like you to keep Eagle Man in Las Cruces.  All Foundation board members have made pledges for this project.

All donations are tax-deductible and those donations made in the amount of $500 or more will be recognized by the Foundation with specifics to be released at a later date. Thank you for your support!
