Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve

May 17, 2019January 5, 2020

This exciting exhibit features approximately sixty works of art from the Joyce Kaser Collection. Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve examines the various ways in which New Mexican artists and others visually portray these two famous figures as well as the flora and fauna in their surroundings.  For example, how many apples are featured, or are they pomegranates? Is the serpent male or female? Is it animal or human, or half-and half? Is Eve always the instigator, or is Adam assuming some responsibility? Situated in the NHCC Art Museum’s highly popular community gallery, Southwest of Eden invites the visitor to take a closer look at the imagery, symbolism and the story of what happened in the garden.
