New Acquisition: Tamarind Institute Printer Training Program, Class of 2018–19 Student Portfolio

This year, for the first time, the UNM Art Museum has acquired a portfolio of fine art lithographs created by students in their first semester at Tamarind Institute. This exciting acquisition highlights the contemporary applications of lithography as an art form, and honors the accomplishments of these emerging artists. Shelly Smith, Tamarind’s head of marketing and development, shares “Everyone is really excited about the acquisition. The amount of upkeep needed to store a work of art in a museum is significant, so when the UNMAM acquired our students’ work it meant that they truly valued the art form and the artists themselves.”
