We pride ourselves on bringing world-class contemporary art to our border community, but also in providing an important platform for understanding the world around us, building spaces for celebration and sharing stories, and creating opportunities for audiences from both on campus and off to unplug and reconnect to one another and to the world around us.
We are grateful for the core support we receive from The University of Texas at El Paso, and for ongoing support from state and national organizations including the Texas Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. But in recent years it’s our local donors who are really making a difference.
Through both donations and active participation in exhibitions and events, our local supporters allowed us to serve more than 11,000 visitors this past year, raising our profile locally, nationally and internationally and helping us become the place where contemporary art meets contemporary life.
In the past year, generous gifts and in-kind support coming directly from the El Paso community have played an important role in allowing us to:
In 2018 we are undergoing an exciting transformation of our auditorium that will allow us to expand our outreach to students and the border community. You can read more about that here http://rubin.utep.edu/index.php/about1/46
In this project, and in all that we do, we count on the active engagement and ongoing support of the border community. Thank you for continuing to be a part of the Rubin Center, the place where contemporary art meets contemporary life.
