A Note from the Director

Thank you for your interest in the NMSU University Art Gallery and the Department of Art!


Our vision for the UAG includes five goals that are meant to reinvigorate a commitment to our stated mission of supporting the teaching mission of the Department of Art, while at the same time offering a variety of outreach and educational experiences to our wider community. In order to fulfill our responsibilities and raise the work of the UAG to a higher level, we aim to:


#1  Increase the Quality of Scholarship at the UAG

#2  Increase Student Access to the UAG

#3  Increase Attendance at the UAG

#4  Increase Membership at the UAG

#5  Increase the UAG Impact through Outreach


If you have ideas about how to achieve these goals, we would love to hear from you. Please feel free contact me at 575/646-2545 or mlanteri@nmsu.edu. I look forward to seeing you at our exhibitions and programs!
