First Friday: Art, Music, and More!

  • Santa Fe, NM

Join us for extended hours at the Museum on the First Friday of every month! Admission is free all day for NM residents and free for everyone from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM.

Celebrate Indigenous Heritage Month at the Museum with musical artist Adrian Wall, an award-winning musician, producer, and visual artist from New Mexico. As an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Jemez, Wall uses his music as a platform to express his love of music and cultural identity. Wall will fill the galleries with songs from his guitar and traditional flute.

The Museum is also hosting special guests Axle Contemporary and Art to G.O. Artist in Residence Brian Fleetwood for a collection event to support Fleetwood’s upcoming project creating wearable art from single-use plastics. Attendees are asked to bring single-use plastics and participate in the creative process, fostering collaboration and sustainability with an emphasis on the transformative power of collective imagination and shared vision. Brian Fleetwood is a multifaceted artist, a faculty member at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA), and a proud member of the Muscogee Creek Nation.

Don’t miss a last chance to view Radical Abstraction, a collection of O’Keeffe’s most abstract paintings from throughout her lifetime. Free spotlight tours will be offered for the exhibition which closes on November 4, 2023.
