Group hopes to start art museum

While everyone knows about the Manhattan Project and Los Alamos’ historic role in it, Los Alamos County has another history hidden in the art collections of its many residents that hasn’t been told yet.
A group of residents is working to start the Los Alamos Museum of Art in an effort to change that. They want to save, keep and eventually present those collections to the public.
The group will present their concept and progress at an “Art on Tap” event at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at Unquarked Wine Room, 145 Central Park Square.
For about a year, LAMOA Executive Director Ruth Tatter and others have worked and documented collections within the community they would like to display. The group does not yet have a building.
“Los Alamos has a science history that’s pretty well documented,” Tatter said. “But there’s also a parallel history of art, music, donors, and that hasn’t really been documented. The collections these people have are pretty incredible.”
LAMOA is looking for a building, volunteers and funds to help keep those collections in Los Alamos.
