    Paper Trail: How the West is One, Too

    The reinstallation of the New Mexico Museum of Art collection in 2007 offered an opportunity to display the history of New Mexico art in a contemporary way. How the West Is One created a single chronology composed of Native American, Hispanic, and European American art. However, because this is a long term exhibition, the display could not include works on paper.

     

    Paper Trail: How the West Is One, Too displays photographs, drawings, and prints to expand the original presentation. The exhibition opens on September 19, 2008 and runs through February 8, 2009.
