Educational Programs

In that serving the art educational need of the area is so important to SWRMA, the board has developed a variety of programs and learning opportunities for both children and adults. Education will be integral to every exhibit and to the studio classes in the Art Center. 

Programs at the museum: 

The museum's outreach program will bring art to residents in the Mining District, Cliff, Glenwood, Lordsburg, the Mimbres etc. 

We will do this in the following ways. 

Community exhibitions at SWRMA will provides opportunities for southwestern New Mexican community organizations to present the work of area artists in the region’s premiere cultural venue. Exhibitions will be selected based on their relevance to the community and the SWRMA’s mission: Through dynamic and meaningful encounters with modern and contemporary American art, SWRMA will engage diverse communities, inspires curiosity and lifelong learning, and contributes to a more vital and inclusive society. Calls for community exhibition proposals will be shared via email and the SWRMA’s social media accounts.

The SWRMA Arts Council will create a partnership between the Museum and teens from local school districts, offering a safe platform for teens to share their voice, work with their peers, and engage with the greater community. The Teen Arts Council will provide teens with dynamic leadership opportunities to create meaningful and relevant programs and exhibitions, while giving teens space to explore identity, build skills, and prepare for college and careers.
