The Collection

With over 20,000 works, the core collection of the New Mexico Museum of Art is primarily art from the Southwest, particularly New Mexico. The Museum is the principal repository for art objects of all mediums that have a relationship to the state from the introduction of the railroad to the current period. The New Mexico Museum of Art collection also includes international art that links the core collection to the West, the Americas, and the World.
