Historic Santa Fe Foundation (HSFF) is pleased to host the exhibition Decomposition with works by 14 New Mexico School for the Arts students at HSFF’s El Zaguán, 545 Canyon Road, from March 1 - 29, 2019 with the opening on Friday, March 1 from 5-7pm at HSFF's El Zaguán.


NMSA's Junior Visual Artists are organizing their first ever thematic exhibition in this lovely historical building, the James A. Johnson House, also known as HSFF's El Zaguán on Canyon Road. Students will be creating fresh new works inspired by the title and theme of decomposition. As part of their training and rooted in the Junior Conceptual Concerns course, NMSA juniors are learning to promote, organize, layout, install and de-install this self-proposed, group exhibition.

NMSA’s mission is to provide the highest standards of educational excellence to passionate young artists who have demonstrated artistic abilities and potential. We work hard to establish a solid foundation that will give these students a strong future and increase their potential for long-term success, so they can pursue a career in the arts or beyond.
