Arts & Culture

At the Crossroads of the Southwest, it would delight some to know that the Mesilla Valley offers an extensive array of art ranging from galleries, museums, studios, public and fine art, to sculptures, paintings, photographs and historical artifacts. A wonderful variety of performing arts, theater, music and dance are also available in this high desert community.

Within the friendly streets of Las Cruces and historic Old Mesilla, local museums, galleries, and alternative art venues provide visitors the chance to not only observe the talents of our many fine local artists but also to learn about our history, culture, and the diversity of our people.
