ArtForms Artists Association is based in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  Las Cruces is the second largest city in the state.  Meetings are held monthly, except for a summer recess during July and August.

Our members are a diverse group that includes professional artists, art enthusiasts, business owners, hobbyists, retirees, students, and teachers.  They are a valuable resource of experience, skills, information and consultation.

ArtForms Artists Association is a non-profit organization that supports and promotes all artistic forms.  Our mission is to ensure that our creative community is regarded as a revenue-generating industry with broad visibility and a solid resource network.  We work towards the recognition of the greater Las Cruces area as an international art and culture destination.  As part of this goal, ArtForms sponsors For the Love of Art Month in February each year.
For the Love of Art Month is wrapping up. Events for the final week include the Las Cruces Friends of Chamber Music student ensemble concert at the Rio Grande Theatre on the Downtown Mall in Las Cruces, NM, on Tuesday, Feb. 24, at 5:30 p.m. and the For the Love of Lit event Saturday, Feb. 28, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Branigan Culture Center, 500 N. Water Street, also on the Downtown Mall. During For the Love of Lit, authors of poetry and prose will read their works from the stage and offer their published works for sale. Both events are free and open to the public.
