A CONTEMPORARY LOOK AT CHILDHOOD IN NEW MEXICO OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 5 - 7PM
EXHIBITION: OCTOBER 4 - OCTOBER 31, 2019 HOURS: THURSDAY - SUNDAY 11AM - 4PM
A Contemporary Look at Childhood in New Mexico is focused on the experience of growing up in New Mexico, and is reflective of our state’s own unique combination of cultural, physical, and historical characteristics. The exhibition considers the complex reality of contemporary childhood shaped by diverse cultures and set in the vast and varied New Mexican landscape. We asked our membership of professional photojournalists, commercial, editorial, and fine art photographers to search through their archives to show us images made over the last 20 years that best reflect their perceptions of childhood in New Mexico, either through observation or their own personal experiences.
