After Carlsbad Caverns was designated a National Monument in 1923, Santa Fe painter Will Shuster was one of the first artists to capture the magnificence. When the New Mexico Museum of Art (MOA) displayed the Carlsbad paintings in 1925, a reviewer called them the “most extraordinary paintings shown here in a decade.”
A Fiery Light: Will Shuster’s New Mexico, is on view at the New Mexico Museum of Art through July 25, 2021 and includes work from Shuster’s time in Carlsbad Caverns.
To give visitors a deeper look at the exhibition, MOA will host a livestream talk today via Zoom, exploring the long history of artists working at Carlsbad Caverns, including Shuster.
