Student art brightens the mood at county government center


Several pieces of original student artwork from the Las Cruces and Gadsden Public Schools have been installed in the first-floor corridors of the Doña Ana County Government Center, 845 N. Motel Blvd. The exhibit includes paintings, etchings, photographs and drawings.

The student art shows have been a rotating fixture for Doña Ana County’s main lobby since 2000, with thousands of works by local student artists displayed for the public. There is also a mixed-media piece by students at the J. Paul Taylor Academy in the upstairs rotunda, honoring civil rights champions.

Works by local artists Virginia Romero, Meg Freyermuth, Joyce T. Macrorie, George Mendoza and others are on permanent display and can be viewed any time during regular county business hours.
