The NMSU University Art Museum (UAM) is thrilled to announce its participation in Desierto Mountain Time, a constellation of contemporary arts organizations in the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico, drawn together by a shared interest in making meaningful connections among local and international communities. Our network was formed at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to think regionally about our shared values and concerns, and explore the common themes among our programs.

We aim to highlight and amplify each point in our shared constellation of arts organizations, and the distinct, yet multi-faceted identity of arts and culture in our region, across states and borders. Spanning the Chihuahuan, Sonoran, and High Deserts, Desierto Mountain Time shines a light on the hub of vital, interconnected arts activity happening in our linked region, and engages art as a means of political, social, economic, and environmental dialogue. Desierto Mountain Time is an open-ended project, that begins with a look at our individual exhibitions during the period of Fall 2021 through Spring 2022.
