Las Cruces, NM-- The NMSU University Art Museum (UAM) is thrilled to announce the 2024 Juried Student Show (JSS) in Devasthali Hall on the campus of NMSU. Every year the UAM receives an impressive variety of submissions by undergraduate and graduate students, highlighting a broad range of materials, methods, and ideas. The JSS is an opportunity to acknowledge NMSU’s hard-working students by recognizing their outstanding creativity. This exhibition consistently attracts a large audience and encourages widespread community support.

The 2024 JSS was juried by Celia Álvarez Muñoz and features 32 artworks, out of over 80 applications received, in a wide range of mediums created by both undergraduate and graduate students from diverse disciplines and various majors across the NMSU main campus.

Born in El Paso, Texas, in 1937, Celia Álvarez Muñoz is most well-known for her collaborative multimedia works. 

Like in past years, the Las Cruces community has supported the JSS by donating funds to produce a variety of monetary awards. These awards benefit the students both by honoring and encouraging them during a crucial time of growth, development, and training. As usual, the JSS has received significant support from the community, and the UAM is honored to be able to give out over $3,810 in awards this year.

Please join the UAM for our opening reception on Friday, March 22, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The award ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. The JSS will be on view in the Contemporary Gallery at the University Art Museum at NMSU from March 22 through April 20, 2024.
