Dear friends of the Rubin Center, 

We have had a terrific year at the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts. We are proud that so many of our exhibitions and projects featured the kind of local, regional and cross-border collaboration that we have become recognized for.  Perhaps nowhere was this more apparent than in the cross-border installation of Border Tuner by artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, which drew on more than a decade of cross-border relationships, engaged thousands of local residents from El Paso and Juarez during its 12-night run, and shed a light on our border community that was shared through dozens of international media outlets.  See photos and links below and at bordertuner.net. 

Although we are proud to share that we continue to receive significant support from national funders including this year from The National Endowment for the Arts, The Mellon Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts, the MAP Fund and more – on this giving Tuesday we also want to recognize that your local support for our work is invaluable.   In the past year, your generous donations to Rubin Center have allowed us to pay for several new student internships, invite visiting artists and arts professionals from around the globe, commission new work by exhibiting artists and expand our outreach to area high schools.   Every donation that you give to the Rubin Center is tax-deductible and goes directly to supporting our high-quality exhibitions and programming.   Thank you continuing to make the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts, our campus and our border cities the place where contemporary art meets contemporary life.
