The Las Cruces Museum of Art will host several virtual programs throughout the month of February to celebrate “For the Love of Art Month”. These programs are free, open to the public, and will take place on the Zoom platform. Please email Bryan Lee at BLee@las-cruces.org for more information.

At 1 p.m. Wednesday, February 3, a demonstration of the "SoulCollage" expressive arts practice will be presented by local artist and educator Jan Hampton. Founded by Seena B. Frost, the SoulCollage method develops creativity and intuition, encourages self-discovery, and provides personal guidance. Registration is required to attend the demonstration, and a material list will be provided for attendees who are interested in trying SoulCollage at home. Contact BLee@las-cruces.org.

At 4 p.m. Friday, February 12, the Museum of Art will feature artists from the upcoming Geometric Aljamia exhibition at the Museum of Art who will discuss their work and lead us through a virtual gallery tour. This exhibition is a cross-cultural collaboration that addresses how Medieval connections between the Islamic world and Europe during the Golden Age of the Islamic Civilization (8th Century-13th Century) continue to be relevant and vibrant in the 21st Century.
