In a new long term exhibition at the New Mexico Museum Of Art, 70 works from the collection combine to tell the story of 125 years of Southwestern Art. How the West was One views the New Mexico art as a singular tradition of intermingling cultures and aesthetics. The intent is to mend the fractured nature in which the states artistic production has been viewed through the lens of art history. Viewing the artistic life of the region as a singular, multi-ethnic construct sheds new light on the history of the states art and artists.

Above is Valorio by James Stovall Morris.
