NMSU Newsroom Article on UAM's Retablo Collection Becoming Digitized 

The NMSU Newsroom wrote an article on the NMSU Univeristy Art Musuem digitizing their collection of Mexican retablos. 

The NMSU Newsroom article states, "New Mexico State University’s Art Museum holds the largest public collection of Mexican retablos in the United States. Soon it will be available at your fingertips thanks to the beginnings of a large-scale digitization project funded by NMSU’s Office of Research, Creativity and Economic Development.

Visitors can see some of NMSU’s more than 2,000 works on tin, wood, copper and canvas in addition to other objects of sacred art in the Margie and Bobby Rankin Retablo Gallery at the University Art Museum located on campus inside Devasthali Hall."
