Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument was established on May 21st, 2014. As part of the National Conservation Lands System the nearly 496,000 acres are some of the Southwest’s most iconic landscapes.
The Artist in Residence partnership between the Friends of Organ Mountains and BLM educates and promotes the appreciation, protections and preservation of natural and cultural resources on public lands. The residency provides an artist and public an opportunity to interact to better enhance the understanding of the public lands as well as the unique qualities an artists eye can capture.
