UNIVERSITY MUSEUM TO HOST RECEPTION FOR NEW EXHIBITS

The NMSU University Museum will host an opening reception for its two new exhibits, "Enchanting the Nation: New Mexico and the United States" and "Sagrado: A Photopoetics across the Chicano/a Homeland," on Feb. 16, from 6-8 p.m. The University Museaum is located in Kent Hall at the corner of University Avenue and Solano Drive.

"Enchanting the Nation: New Mexico and the United States" will honor New Mexico as it celebrates its 100th anniversary of statehood. The exhibit explores the complex relationships territorial New Mexicans had with the United States and the creation of New Mexican cultural identities.

"Sagrado: A Photopoetics across the Chicano/a Homeland" showcases images and poems from the book project of the same name, combining genres of photography, essay and poetry, providing an intimate view into the world of Chicano culture. Lowriders, religious pilgrims, field workers, charros and everyday people adorn the geographical and cultural landscape of the exhibit. These images and stories are not detached snapshots of a moment; they are markers of history and our place in it.

Continuing from the fall exhibit will be "Dancing Under the Moon: A Portrait of the Raramuri of the Sierra Tarahumara." It explores Rarámuri culture, an indigenous group from north of Mexico City, through art and material culture, with photographs by Richard Speedy and objects from personal and museum collections.
