Hey Pokémon Go trainers, how’s your week going? Tomorrow, on Saturday June 15, we’ll be handing out free Pokémon themed buttons to players who visit the museum in honor of the current Pokémon Go Global Challenge! And, if you’re lucky and catch a shiny Horsea, be sure to show it to a museum assistant at the front desk to win a free art poster! Be safe out there, and good luck!

This exquisite image by photographer Jo Whaley is one of several artworks that will be featured in our upcoming Director’s Picks Collection Conversation on Thursday, June 20 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Our very own Arif Khan will be speaking about the growth of the UNMAM collection during 1999-2000, which coincided with his time as a graduate student at UNM. A particularly rich period of acquisitions for the Museum, these two years saw almost 2,000 artworks added to the permanent collection. We hope you’ll join us for this rare opportunity to view important works from our vaults, and learn more about the history of the UNM Art Museum.

Space is limited, please RSVP to Devin Geraci at [email protected].

Bay Area funkadelic: The work of experimental filmmaker Bruce Conner

Tomorrow (Saturday, April 6) is the very last day you will be able to see BREAKAWAY and LOOKING FOR MUSHROOMS on view in Please Enjoy and Return: Bruce Conner Films from the Sixties. Starting on Tuesday, April 9 we will be changing our video display over to show REPORT in the lower gallery space, so if you haven't had a chance to see these first two groundbreaking films, this is your last opportunity. We will be open tomorrow from 10 AM to 8 PM, so come by and take advantage of our late Saturday hours. Thanks so to Michael Abatemarco and Pasatiempo for the great review!

Slow and steady movement is hardly what artist and experimental filmmaker Bruce Conner was after in his movies. At least that’s true of the three films from the 1960s —

NEW MEXICO: We love how our partners UNM Art Museum in Albuquerque utilized their incredible #50StateInitiative exhibition for modern dance students to activate the space!
.
During the fall semester, UNM Art Museum created an interactive gallery space inviting visitors to collectively define notions of freedom. The gallery served as a place to reflect upon broader and varied articulations of what it means to be free, especially for University of New Mexico College of Fine Arts students enrolled in The Art of Transmission, Modern Dance II, Politics of Performance, Intermediate Art and Ecology, and Art Practices II to develop programming and exhibition content focused on a range of topics that interrogate and explore our current political climate.
.
Additional shout out to SITE Santa Fe and Y Vote NM for incredible work during the #50StateInitiative. Way to go New Mexico!
.
Through the end of 2018 we will be celebrating our partner institutions’ and artists’ activations during the #50StateInitiative from A to Z. Check back for tomorrow’s feature and follow #50StateAtoZ! @ UNM Art Museum

“She spent all the time she possibly could on the mountain and it always held the same fascination for her. She knew the rocks and the rosy dawn glow but most of all she knew the life there and was overwhelmed by her awareness of the struggle, the beauty, and the pain.”

So ends Agnes Martin’s fable, ‘The Rose Colored Mountain,’ likely one of the earliest found examples of her writing, dating from the early 1950s. The Taos landscape of mountains rising from flat desert plains inspired Martin’s work, from this watercolor of the late 1940s to her better-known horizontal line paintings. #InternationalMountainDay

It’s an exciting day for public art at UNM! Luis Jimenez’ monumental fiberglass sculpture “Fiesta Dancers” is currently being conserved after years of exposure in the harsh desert elements. A visual focal point of the UNM campus, “Fiesta Dancers” will undergo cleaning and restoration by Silo Workshop, thanks to funding from the UNM Provost’s Office.

The UNM Art Museum joins our friends and colleagues at Tamarind Institute in mourning the passing of artist, printmaker and educator Garo Antreasian.

His dedication to the act of teaching and mentoring as well as his innovative artistic practice inspired countless students at UNM, Tamarind and beyond.

The museum proudly holds over 100 of his prints and paintings in our collection, many of which were donated by the artist himself.

We offer our sincere condolences to the Antreasian family and to all of his former students.

Garo was an anchor for Tamarind and for so many in the print community around the world. Since his role as Tamarind's first technical director and master printer at Tamarind Lithography Workshop, he never stopped mentoring and inspiring artists and printmakers around the world. He will be greatly missed, and always celebrated.

Many of you have already done so, but please share your photos of Garo. It's so heart-warming to see all the good memories, and there are so many with 96 1/2 years of work and play. #GaroAntreasian #TheMan #Lithography #TLW #HisotryofPrintmaking #HistoryofLithography #ArtHistory #TheLegacy #BlendRolls
