Albuquerque Museum is actively collecting objects and images that capture the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the people of New Mexico. Objects of national and international import may also be considered for the permanent collection of the Museum, but the focus is objects and photographs from, created by, or created for New Mexico and the United States Southwest specifically.
