New Deal Art Center / Collection – Melrose NM

Description

Melrose was home to one of four New Deal Art Centers in New Mexico, where “art classes and traveling exhibitions were held.” The site of these events is no longer extant.

However, some of the facilities at the school campus in Melrose, New Mexico house a substantial collection of New Deal artwork, examples of which are listed at the source below.
