Dear UNM Students, Faculty, Friends, and Supporters of UNM Museums,

In support of our community’s commitment to limiting the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) through social distancing and restricting public gatherings, the UNM Maxwell Museum of Anthropology will remain closed to the public until further notice.

During this challenging time, when we cannot serve our visitors in person, we are working to increase our online resources for students, educators, and all looking for solace and information. We will be sharing worksheets and other educational resources for K-12 students and educators on our website and through social media. Our new, and rapidly evolving, virtual exhibition COVID-19: Concepts of Sickness and Wellness, will provide historical and anthropological contexts on our current challenges and helpful information for New Mexico residents; and we’ll be sharing stories, collections, and research through all of our digital platforms. We look forward to re-opening our doors when we can safely do so, and until then, we welcome you to our virtual museum.

With news of the continuing concern of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the UNM Art Museum will remain closed to the public until further notice to limit the spread of the virus in our community.

Our upcoming conversation, “Hearts of Our People: Centering Collaboration in Museum Work”, will be postponed until Fall 2020. Stay tuned for more details! The UNM Art Museum will continue to regularly share content on Facebook and Instagram to keep you inspired and connected. We are also excited to announce that our the online exhibition catalogue for Indelible Ink: Native Women, Printmaking, Collaboration will be published soon and available for your enjoyment. In these uncertain times, we will remain dedicated to art and its power to ignite and connect us.
