Six-month rotating exhibitions encourage active community engagement in determing the content of the gallery.

Albuquerque Museum invites community members to propose exhibits for public display. These exhibits serve as a means by which the people of Albuquerque might explore our past, the issues that make up our present, and stories that impact our future.

You can create an exhibit at the Albuquerque Museum! The Museum’s Keleher Gallery Review Panel is actively collecting proposals from our local community for our 2018-2020 exhibit schedule. The Keleher Gallery exhibition series presents exhibits on community history and contemporary issues that are important to the people of Albuquerque.
