  • Brief Description

    The Art in Public Places Program of New Mexico Arts and the Local Selection Committee (LSC) at New Mexico State University (NMSU) and New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA) seek to purchase 1 to 3 artworks ready for purchase. These artworks will need to withstand a permanent installation outdoors in an uncovered area of the NMDA courtyard at the NMSU campus in Las Cruces, NM. The LSC is interested in artwork contemporary in nature that explores the following ideas centered around AGRICULTURE: history of agriculture, illustrates the importance of agriculture to New Mexicans/our society and culture, the positive impacts of the agriculture industry, narrations on how the agricultural industry touches our lives every day. Artists should also consider the locations available for installation within the courtyard: please CLICK HERE for a site plan and details. The LSC’s goal is to acquire artwork that will highlight and narrate the agriculture industry while interjecting art and culture to this courtyard space. Ultimately, the inclusion of this artwork will assist in creating a welcoming space for users of the surrounding buildings and campus.
