Southwest of Eden: The Art of Adam and Eve

May 17, 2019January 3, 2021

This exciting exhibit features approximately fifty 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 story of what happened in the garden.

This will be the first exhibit in the Bosque Gallery Series. The New Bosque Gallery at National Hispanic Cultural Center will be 730 feet in length (roughly 2 ½ times the size of a football field).  This beautiful open-air gallery space runs along the Bosque Trail to the east of the Rio Grande just south of César Chávez and Dolores Huerta Avenues.

Bosque Gallery exhibitions will be mounted on the exterior wire fencing owned by the NHCC.  Exhibitions rotate between the key program areas, and will include topics supporting the NHCC’s Mission including History and Literary Arts, Visual Arts, and Performing Arts.  The Bosque Gallery exhibits will be accessible, bilingual, and inclusive. The Bosque Trail is highly trafficked with cyclists, joggers, and walkers.  These groups of visitors include families and individuals.

There are 31 re-printable panels (48 x 60 inches each) available for each exhibition. All panels will be hung on exterior fence facing the Bosque Trail. The panels are made from ALU-PANEL, a reusable thin polycarbonate metal substrate. The panels are reusable, meaning that the vinyl printing for each exhibit can be peeled off and the panels can be re-printed with each new project.  The panels have an anti-graffiti coating and can last for many years if handled properly.
