Welcome to the New Mexico Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) was founded in 1987. Located in Washington, D.C., this museum is solely dedicated to celebrating the diverse artistic achievements of women through visual, performing and literary arts by honoring women artists of the past, promoting the accomplishments of women artists of the present, and assuring the place of women artists in the future.

The New Mexico Committee of the Museum (NMC-NMWA) was founded in 1997. Its role is to enhance the mission of the Museum, and to bring recognition to the achievements of women artists residing in New Mexico through special events, art shows, lectures, educational programs, and our many diverse "Artful Afternoons."

New Mexico women artists in the collection of the National Museum include:
Corn Blue, Judy Chicago, Marie Zieu Chino, Helen Cordero, Grace Medicine Flower, Dolores Lewis Garcia, Agnes Martin, Santana Royal Martinez, Maria Martinez, Emma Lewis Mitchell, Georgia O'Keeffe, Cathy Raymond, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Lu Ann Tafoya, Margaret Tafoya, and Nancy Youngblood.
