Last summer we met with Mark White, New Mexico Museum of Art Executive Director, via Zoom regarding the Multicultural mural. We are posting this video now because we think it is important for the community to know that they have continued to mislead and lie to us. They told us they want community involvement and we have requested a construction timeline multiple times. We were blindsided by the press release this week regarding construction beginning and the “retirement” of the Multicultural mural. The recording starts a little late into the meeting, the non-recorded beginning included introductions as well as presenting the results of the questionnaire we did. Also present at the meeting are Daniel Zillmann, NM DCA head of Marketing and Communications, as well as Cynthia Lawrence, the art conservator the state hired to review the mural.
We will be meeting at the mural tomorrow @ 11am to make our voices heard, please join us!!!!
DCA told us they wanted community involvement and we’re going to provide us a construction timeline, they lied!They completely blindsided us with their press release this week and contradicted what they had told us in our previous interactions with them.Join us @ the mural tomorrow @ 11am!!!!
Please join the New Mexico Museum of Art community meeting TODAY @ 5:30pm and let them know that keeping the Multicultural mural is how they can meet their goal of diversity and inclusion. This mural represents the community and needs to stay. Public art is accessible art.
The mural is all the things they claim to want, yet they plan to tear it down, please let them know this is not ok!
