The artwork was donated and created by alumni, faculty and students, as well as regional, national and international artists. The 5-by-7-inch works of art will be exhibited anonymously and offered for sale. Proceeds will support the development of a new art facility.

“We want our students to have an incredibly rich experience here,” said Julia Barello, head of the NMSU Department of Art. “Funds raised through Project: Postcard will be used to support the D.W. Williams Hall Project, which will provide such a space for our students and the community.”

The presentation will culminate with the postcard art sale and silent auction at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29. The event is free and open to the public, however, if you would like to take home a piece of work, tickets are $40 per person and allow the ticket holder one postcard per ticket.

This year’s “Project: Postcard” is sponsored by the Devasthali Family Foundation Fund, a fund in the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico, and ASA Architects.

To purchase a ticket, visit the Department of Art, Room 100A, in D. W. Williams Hall on the NMSU campus. Tickets are also available at The Cutter Gallery, located on the corner of University Ave. and El Paseo Road.
