American Masterpieces

American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius is a program that celebrates the best of American arts and culture. Through American Masterpieces, the National Endowment for the Arts supports performances, visual arts exhibits, and sponsors tours and educational programs in communities throughout the country.

New Mexico Arts' 2006 American Masterpieces Project was a new initiative in collaboration with New Mexico State Monuments, Museums Division, New Mexico Office of Archaeological Studies, New Mexico Endowment for the Humanities, and various tribal museums and cultural centers, to showcase significant New Mexican traditional arts at exhibitions/workshops/demonstrations at four of our state's six monuments. Each featured art form represents a visual arts tradition that is an integral part of the historical cultural fabric of New Mexico.
