Members play a vital role in supporting the El Paso Museum of Art. Every year the Museum hosts Members’ Choice, where members review a selection of art work for possible acquisition. During this special event, Museum members cast votes for their favorite work. The work with the most member support is purchased with Museum funds. Over the years Members’ Choice has brought many important works into the collection, from old master prints to contemporary sculptures.

On November 17, 2011, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Members will gather once again at Members’ Choice to select a piece of art work to add to the permanent collection. This is a private event for Museum Members. To inquire about becoming a Member please call Barbara Read at (915) 532-1707 x 64.

This year’s art work choices include four selections of Chicano Art.  Each work of art is currently on view through Nov. 28, 2011 in the Roderick Gallery: Retablo Niche.

Parking is available at the Convention Center Parking Garage, Mills Plaza Parking Garage and the Camino Real Hotel for a fee. Limited metered parking is available on Main Street.
