For the first time in over twenty years, and a year after renovating the museum’s renowned Kress Collection of European Art Galleries, the El Paso Museum of Art refreshes its second floor galleries devoted to permanent collections and special exhibitions. When the second floor galleries reopen in fall 2019, treasures from the museum’s collection of over 7,000 objects will be seen anew. Highlights from EPMA’s collections of Spanish Colonial Art, Mexican Retablos, American Paintings and Sculptures, West Texas Art, Modern and Contemporary Art, Prints, and Photography will be presented in new installations. Recent acquisitions will appear for the first time alongside long-time favorites, and together the work will tell the history of art and collecting at the El Paso Museum of Art.

Support for the Refresh Project provided by the de Wetter Charitable Family Fund, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation, and the City of El Paso.
