A Life of Service: The Mari-Luci Jaramillo Collection, 1905-2007

Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm
1st Saturday of the Month, 1pm-5pm

A Life of Service: The Mari-Luci Jaramillo Collection, 1905-2007

The Mari-Luci Jaramillo Collection provides an unparalleled look at a life dedicated to and distinguished by service to community, state, and the nation. A native New Mexican and daughter of laborers, Mari-Luci Jaramillo grew from a studious child in La Vegas, NM to become a teacher, a leader in education reform, a national advocate for civil rights, and the first Latina Ambassador of the United States to Honduras.

This archival collection of correspondence, speeches, articles, photographs, and artifacts highlights her family history, early adulthood, and extensive career in higher education and government. It reflects the central beliefs of Mari-Luci Jaramillo’s life and career: family and community, pride of heritage, and that service to others is important.

Opening Reception: Fantasía Fantástica: Imaginative Spaces and Other Worldly Collage

6 pm to 8 pm

Join us for a free public reception of this new exhibition, generously sponsored by law firm Montgomery & Andrews. The reception will include music by Keith Sanchez, food by M’Tucci’s Latin Cocina, and a cash bar by Pop Fizz. There will also be the opportunity to gain insight into the artistic process of Rachel Muldez as she installs “Event Horizon” in the museum gallery from 6pm to 7 pm.

This exhibition invites you to explore fantastical forms in unexpected places! Artists Nick Abdalla, Cynthia Cook, Carlos Quinto Kemm, and Rachel Muldez create works that toy with space and expand the parameters of collage. They inspire new ways of thinking about the “stuff” that surrounds us every day as well as what we consider “art-worthy” materials.
