We love art museums and try to take time to visit wherever we find one. After the fabulous collection we viewed in Roswell, NM a few weeks ago, we were looking forward to another treat.
Since it was a Wednesday afternoon, the lack of cars in the parking lot didn't mean much. After entering we saw a woman sitting behind the desk who appeared to be a security guard.
I said, "We would like to tour your museum."
She replied, "There is no exhibit now."
I said, "That's okay. We were not aware of any special exhibits anyway."
She said, "The next exhibit won't open until April 15th."
Still clueless, I said something like, "We'd still like to view your collection" to which she finally got through to me that THERE IS NO COLLECTION. I would type some giggles and tee hees here except that she was serious; it is true. The Las Cruces Museum of Art has no permanent collection!
After we got back to the RV later, I logged onto their website, which is where I copied the banner above and the following photo which clearly shows the museum's collection...
Maybe I was just ready for a good laugh, but I did find this humorous! I do wish them all the best in acquiring a collection of art because it appears that they have a lovely building in a great location in the heart of town.
