Fine Arts and Digital Media


The UNM-Taos Department of Fine Arts and Digital Media inspires students to tap into their creative potential by engaging in rich dialogue on contemporary art and art history. Students learn traditional foundations, contemporary approaches, interdisciplinary practices, and conceptual problem solving. A core belief of the Art Department is to help students understand the ever-changing nature of art, its affects on contemporary culture, and the discovery of their place in the global art community.

In addition to serving students who want to explore their artistic practice as a community practice, the Art Department offers certificates and degrees:
