site one.jpg

The stretch of highway between El Paso and Las Cruces sparked a conversation that led to a unique jewelry exhibition created by two borderland art professors. The show titled ?CrossPASS? recently ran at the Velvet Da Vinci gallery in San Francisco.

New Mexico State University assistant professor of art Motoko Furuhashi and her collaborator Demi Thomloudis, a former art professor at the University of Texas at El Paso who is now at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia, used steel, sand, dry grass, acrylic, paint, silver and a land segment to create a series of brooches and necklaces for the exhibit based on locations along Interstate 10.

RePete, NMSU?s Property and Supplies marketplace, available to campus community

The Central Property Office would like to remind the university community about RePete, NMSU?s Property and Supplies marketplace. RePete (http://repete.nmsu.edu) is a web application to facilitate the exchange of useful university-owned property and supplies among university departments. Prior to turning unneeded, but still serviceable property or supplies into Central Property, departments should list items on RePete to offer them to other departments. Interested NMSU departments in need of item(s) may search on the site for something desired, or subscribe to receive email notifications from RePete when items in selected categories are listed on the system. Clicking ?Request Item? on the item?s listing page sends an email to the department expressing interest. Departments then work together to complete transfers. Access to the system only requires login using myNMSU credentials.

Departments should follow university procedures for property transfer, including those for tagged property and those governing exchanges involving transfer of funds. For information about specified procedures, please refer to the Central Property Office section of the Business Procedures Manual. The related forms used in property transfer are linked from the Central Property Forms page on the RePete website. Questions related to RePete can be emailed to nmsuproperty@nmsu.edu.

Many items become available and are claimed and/or purchased by other units daily. As examples, NMDA listed three trucks on Friday: a Dodge Ram 3500, a Ford F-250 and another Dodge Ram 3500. For information about acquiring these, click on the links or visit RePete at http://repete.nmsu.edu.

We receive many computers and monitors on a regular basis. Because of space constraints, we cannot list each one received at the Surplus Property Warehouse on RePete. We very much appreciate those departments listing these items before sending them to the warehouse. If you have a need for computers or monitors and do not see what you need listed on RePete, please contact us at nmsuproperty@nmsu.edu or 575-646-3139 to let us know what is needed and whether there are specific requirements, such as a particular operating system; we can notify you when we receive something that meets your needs.
