EPMA is thrilled to have acquired one of Michel Namingha’s artworks, from the exhibition “Michael Namingha: Altered Landscapes” that was on view from August 12, 2021- January 2, 2022.
The new acquisition celebrates EPMA’s diverse collection by being the first-ever acquisition of works by a Tewa/Hopi Artist.
“Altered landscape 11” the winning piece, is an abstract artwork that juxtaposes geometric shapes and the composition is mounted to shape Plexiglas creating a three-dimensional piece.
Your membership contribution generates awe-inspiring programming and unforgettable experiences at the museum, including EPMA’s Day of the Dead Celebration. Every year, over 10,000 visitors witness larger than life calavera marionettes come to life, along with colorful alebrijes at the annual Dia de los Muertos parade. The artist collective from Mexico City, Colectivo Ultima Hora, designed the monumental marionettes and the mythical alebrijes to be enjoyed at each year’s festivities.
Make EPMA your destination this Dia de los Muertos and enjoy themed programming at the El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso Museum of History, and the Downtown Art and Farmers Market at Cleveland Square. View Catrinas, alebrijes, and participate in a parade full of beautiful regional traditions and colorful splendor, ending the evening with a final celebratory concert.
