WE ARE ALMOST FAMOUS, BUY OUR ART WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!
All mediums will be represented, from painting, prints, photography, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, and mixed media. The money raised at the student sale will not only support the individual students, but also the NMSU Department of Art clubs which give students opportunities to go to conventions, symposia, and other enriching activities that supplement their education. A portion of the art sales will support the Williams Hall Renovation Project and will be matched by Ammu and Rama Devasthali. In addition, the funds from any Friends of the University Art Gallery memberships purchased during the sale will go towards the William Hall Renovation Project. So, not only are you supporting the student artists, you are supporting the NMSU Department of Art clubs, as well as the future generations of art students at NMSU.
