ART NM! is a family-friendly event occurring in eight communities across the state in April. Individuals can make art; engage in the visual arts, music, and theater; and learn about the diverse creative resources that are available in each community. Funding for ART NM! comes, in part, from a grant through New Mexico Arts, a division of the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs.

ART NM! is also taking place in Artesia, Farmington, Gallup, Hobbs, Las Cruces, Roswell and Taos.
