New Mexico Museum of Art

Renamed in 2007, the New Mexico Museum of Art (NMMoA) has built a collection of more than 20,000 works of art in its 1917 Pueblo style building in Santa Fe. The building, designed by Chicago architects Rapp & Rapp, is often credited with establishing the Pueblo Spanish Revival style of architecture, prevalent in Santa Fe. The Museum's collecting focus has always been art of the Southwest in general and New Mexico in particular, by artists who have worked, lived, or been influenced by travel through the area. The museum's website highlights several strong collection areas, including political outlooks, landscape, defining New Mexico, aesthetic fusions, and famous New Mexico artists. The Southwest is widely known as an area of great natural beauty, inspiring artists from all over the world. A variety of cultures have collided and commingled in New Mexico; Native Americans, settlers of European descent, more recently established landowners and tourists - and this cultural heritage is all apparent in the NMMoA collection.
