This permanent exhibition showcases highlights from the Museum of the Southwest collection, with a strong focus on art of the Southwestern United States. With galleries devoted to landscapes, portraits and animals, viewers can explore different artistic styles and themes or discover a new favorite work of art. With a rotating selection of basketry, textiles and works on paper, there will always be something new to see for repeat visitors. Fresh research on important historical works, including those by Norman Rockwell, Rosa Bonheur, Albert Bierstadt and the Taos Society of Artists, is featured in gallery panels, as well as in an upcoming book about the Collection.
