NMSU OutsmART Día de los Muertos Extinct Species Retablo Exhibition

  • Project Room

This exhibition features retablos created during the New Mexico State University OutsmART Día de los Muertos Extinct Species Workshop held in the new art building on October 26th.  This free event was a collaboration between the NMSU University Art Museum’s OutsmART Children’s workshop series and the Southwest Environmental Center. The works created during the workshop reference the traditional style of Mexican Retablo ex-voto paintings, making a visual vow of support with paint and collage on metal that memorializes our Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande. 

The final works will be presented on November 1, 2019, as an alter during the Old Mesilla, Día de los Muertos celebration.  After this event, they will be placed for viewing at Cruces Creatives from November 5 -11th.


This workshop and exhibition are part of the regional collaboration series in partnership with 516 Arts, a contemporary museum in ABQ who is responding to the global biological crisis happening in our region along the Rio Grande.
