Love of Art Month February is a special time in Las Cruces and is proclaimed by the City of Las Cruces to be For the Love of Art Month.  Special activities include studio tours, a member art show and art happenings all around the town.      We’re moving right along with plans for Love of Art Month 2015.  February is going to be a great month!!  Make plans to open your studios to the public and let them see where you work and what new things you are doing.  You can choose from two different weekends or you can have your studio open both weekends.  Everyone loves to see a demonstration so plan on doing that during your Studio Tour.  Arrange a special showing of your work in local venues and give us the information so we can put it in the 2015 Event Guide.  If you are a performing artist, make arrangements to showcase your talent and let us know the details for the Guide. Your help, talent and brain power is needed. In order for Love of Art Month to continue to be the success it has been, your talent and time as a volunteer for one of the Action Committees would be hugely appreciated.  Please consider volunteering.  Below are the forms that are currently available.  Most applications are due December 1, 2014, so download the forms now and get started.    2015 - Studio Tour Application - DOC / PDF Deadline is December 1, 2014 2015 - Art Around Town Application - DOC / PDF Deadline is December 1, 2014 2015 - Special Events and Performing Arts Application - DOC / PDF Deadline is December 1, 2014 2015 - ArtForms Member Show Application - DOC / PDF Deadline is December 26, 2014 2015 - Event Guide Advertising - DOC / PDF Deadline is December 5, 2014 ArtForms Membership Form - DOC / PDF There are many photographs from the 2014 Love of Art Month events posted on our Facebook page.  We invite you to visit and observe the vibrancy, diversity and talent of our Southern New Mexico artists.
