However, the museum will still have some virtual exhibitions. During their closure, staff transformed four physical exhibitions into virtual ones. “And while we always felt like the in-person experience was better we did learn with especially these types of programs we had people able to participate all over the country and even around the world. Things we wouldn’t have been able to do if we had them here,” said Arif Khan, UNM Art Museum director.

The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit
