The Albuquerque Museum hosts Another World: The Transcendental Painting Group, June 26 – September 26, 2021. Initiated in Taos in 1938, the Transcendental Painting Group formed to explore a heightened vision of the American landscape. They did so by employing free-wheeling symbols and imagery, drawn from the collective unconscious to depict a transfigured, spiritually alive America. These artists sought to evoke sensuous, synesthetic experiences of nature and the cosmos, often using references to music and esoteric philosophies. This exhibit seeks to reintroduce the public to an exciting and still vital vision.
The Albuquerque Museum hours are Tuesday – Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the museum is $6 for adults, $5 for Adult New Mexico residents with ID, $4 for seniors 65+, $3 for children 4-12 years old, and free for children under 3. To purchase tickets, visit the Hold My Ticket website, or call 1-877-466-3404.
