The College of Fine Arts is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in education by continuing the traditions of our profession which include the arts of all peoples. Our focus is on the development of the individual student, so each might find meaning and fulfillment as an artist, as an educated member of society, and as an expressive human being.

Fine Arts Events

Because of the continued spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) nationwide, Eastern New Mexico University has canceled all campus events until July 31. University events will resume as the situation allows, and additional information regarding events will be posted as it becomes available.

We take very seriously the responsibility to make prudent and well-informed choices for the well-being of our campus community and the public. We continue to prepare for all scenarios in this rapidly evolving situation. The health of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority.
