NMSU students bring ?The Joy of Learning? back to life

In its spot on a patch of lawn behind New Mexico State University?s Branson Library, a threatening cycle of ice, heat and calcium-rich sprinkler water has gradually worn away ?The Joy of Learning? sculpture. ?The bronze sculpture has become very corroded over the years,? said Silvia Marinas-Feliner, director of the Museum Conservation Program in NMSU?s College of Arts and Sciences. ?Corrosion due to water and salt makes the surface very porous. If we don?t do anything about it, eventually the corrosion is going to start creating holes and then the metal will start to disappear.?

Resilience in New Mexico Agriculture regional meeting in Las Cruces set for Jan. 7

New Mexico State University and New Mexico First are joining forces to help develop a strategic plan to maintain a resilient New Mexico food and agricultural system.

The Resilience in New Mexico Agriculture regional meeting will be held in Las Cruces from 9:30 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Jan. 7, at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, 4100 Dripping Springs Road. A free lunch will be served.

Ten additional regional meetings will be held around the state between December 2015 and March 2016.

?It takes a diverse network of farmers, ranchers, processors, distributors and market organizers to make a difference in the future of agriculture,? said Michael Patrick, NMSU?s Extension specialist and Arrowhead Center economic development coordinator. ?We?re encouraging anyone interested in this strategic plan to join us to discuss their best ideas for ensuring a robust food and agriculture system in New Mexico.?


Opening reception for 'Water! What is it Good for?' to be held Jan. 21

The opening reception of "Water! What is it Good for?" will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21, at the University Art Gallery. This event is free and open to the public.

For this exhibition, Bethany Taylor, an interdisciplinary artist from Gainesville, Florida and assistant professor of drawing at the University of Florida, is using the medium of string to draw figurative artworks that will be installed on the UAG?s walls. Taylor?s works can be understood as contemporary allegories with a twist. These woven stories combine cross-cultural mythology and symbols with modern-day imagery and concerns for the longevity of our environment.

Brenda Perry, an El Paso, Texas native, works across media and focuses on the Rio Grande river as the central theme of her work. Born in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, she sees the Rio Grande as a threshold between communities that needs to be reconsidered from combined social and environmental perspectives. In her interactive works that will be on display, Perry bridges the logic between contemporary virtual and physical landscapes.
