Collections from The University of New Mexico Art Musuem


  • The University of New Mexico Art Museum's permanent photography collection includes some 10,000 photographs (by over 1,000 different photographers) and early cased objects, spans the entire history of the medium and constitutes, along with the print collection, the heart of the museum's holdings. Begun in 1962 by Van Deren Coke, the museum's first director, this significant collection is without question, the foundation on which the museum's reputation was built and rests to this day. It is the largest fine art photography collection in the state of New Mexico and one of the major collegiate collections in the country.

    The University of New Mexico Art Museum's permanent collection of prints and rare printed books, numbering over ten thousand, spans the history of the graphic arts from 1493 to the present, and constitutes, along with the photography collection, the heart of the museum's permanent collection. Within the museum's extensive holdings it is possible to trace the critical, intellectual and aesthetic breadth of the history of the printed image through a myriad of historical and contemporary processes and techniques.
