About our Exhibitions

The University Museum produces exhibitions on a rotating schedule aligning with the NMSU academic calendar and student degree requirements. Exhibitions are curated by museum staff, faculty, as well as students - often in collaboration with eachother and with community members. We strive for these exhibitions to draw from research with the University Museum's collections, and to further our mission of examining human experiences - past, present, and future - through the relational connections with New Mexico State University.

The museum's Lobby exhibition space provides the opportunity for smaller, special-topics oriented exhibitions as well as exhibitions highlighting current research. The museum's West Gallery houses student-curated exhibitions by students pursuing certificates in Museum Studies. The museum's East Gallery houses our permanent exhibition of ceramics, as well as yearly-rotating exhibitions based on long-term, collaborative research. Due to COVID-19, some of our exhibitions planned for the Fall 2020 exhibition schedule moved online.
