New Media New Mexico is a project to highlight media arts in our state each summer. Known for both its exceptional environmental beauty and its work in scientific innovation, New Mexico has historically been a mecca for the arts and technology. In recent years, our state has become a gathering place for new media artists and enthusiasts from around the world who converge here to focus on the expanding intersection of art, science and technology.

We are looking for artists or arts organizations who would like to be part of a media arts trail in New Mexico. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the spectacular landscape of New Mexico and the exciting world of 21st century art at the same time.

If you would like to be part of the trail and have a proposal for an indoor or outdoor exhibition/installation contact us and we can discuss a possible collaboration.
