Kitchen Table Serves as Symbolic Centerpiece Exhibition

Reception Saturday, Oct. 14, 4 – 6 p.m.,
free admission
Meet the artists and enjoy refreshments. Kitchen Table Arts-in-Action Program Day: Sunday, Oct. 15, free admission


A new Millicent Rogers Museum exhibition centers around the notion that artistic traditions and practices center around the kitchen table. According to the press release sent by the museum, “practices are passed on at kitchen tables – whether in a kitchen, in a classroom, in a yard, or at a church. The kitchen table takes form anywhere and everywhere as a meeting place and a place of learning, observation, exchange, and storytelling. It becomes the glue that gives meaning to artistic legacies that emerge from mentorships, friendships, families, and loved ones.”


The exhibition will feature 20 New Mexico artists that ground artistic mentorship in families and social circles as a sustainable cycle of legacy and stability. The exhibition will run from October 14, 2023, to January 24, 2024. It is sponsored by the National for the Arts Challenge grant.
