About “Women to Watch”

Women to Watch is an exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, featuring women artists from the locations where NMWA has outreach committees.

New Mexico State Committee members sponsor artists to represent New Mexico on this national stage, providing an opportunity to promote the innovative and extraordinary work of our women artists. Names and photos from past winners are to the left; to review a complete list of our 2018 nominees and read their inspiring stories, click here: NM 2018 Nominees

We have recently selected a NM-based museum curator to identify artists for the 2020 exhibit and are happy to announce Laura Addison from the Museum of International Folk Art as our curator. For latest updates on 2020, click here.

If one of our artists is selected by NMWA, we provide funds to insure and ship her work to the Museum, and offer a stipend of to help defray travel costs. If you would like to support our next New Mexico Woman to Watch, please make a donation today.
