Your museum

The University of New Mexico Art Museum is dedicated to advanced learning and creating connections, both in and outside of the University community. As a teaching museum, we are committed to offering students professional development and mentorship opportunities as well as access to the largest collection of artwork in New Mexico.

UNMAM offers entry at no cost, educational programming, and up-close access to historically significant artworks alongside the works of exciting, emergent artists. We’d love to see you for a few minutes between classes, when you’re looking for a quiet place to recharge, or on a date with someone special. We hope that your museum experience will inspire you to return again throughout your studies and after your graduation.

Outside of a visit to UNMAM, we offer a variety of ways for UNM students to connect to the museum, its collection, and its staff. This page will be your go-to guide for opportunities and experiences at UNMAM, along with a dedicated space to celebrate the accomplishments of you and your fellow Lobos.

During your time at the University of New Mexico, the UNM Art Museum is your museum.

What is Student Advisory Council?

Formerly known as the UNM Art Museum Student Advisory Board, Student Advisory Council is a student group for those who are interested in art, museums, gaining professional development and mentorship in the museum field. It is a group of dedicated students who will serve as a consultative and collaborative body at UNMAM. The group will officially re-launch in September 2023.

Join us on September 12th from 4-5 PM at UNMAM for the first SAC meeting of the semester!
