The New Mexico Watercolor Society, Southern Chapter invites you to share their interpretations of how railroad architecture has influenced New Mexico. Seventeen artists have created watercolor paintings and will be on display at the Las Cruces Railroad Museum during For the Love of Art Month in February 2017.
“For the Love of Railroad Architecture” will hang from Friday, February 3 through Saturday, April 1 at the Las Cruces Railroad Museum. An opening reception will be held during the First Friday Ramble, February 3, from 5-7 pm, at the Railroad Museum. Join us!
Railroads have played a very important part in our local history, changing the landscape and influencing the population and industry. A wide variety of building styles have emerged, prompted by the arrival of the railroad, bringing new residents with ideas from other areas.
The museum is located at 351 N. Mesilla Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00am to 4:30pm and Saturday 9:00am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or call (575) 647-4480.
If you need an accommodation for a disability to enable you to fully participate in this event, please contact the museum 48 hours prior to the event.
