NM Museum of Art Legacy Courtyard Garden

Breaking ground for the redesign and installation of the new courtyard garden at the Museum of Art

The entire courtyard garden was torn up and replanted–financed by the Santa Fe Garden Club

A Growing Legacy

The Santa Fe Garden Club and the New Mexico Museum of Art’s Courtyard Garden

Founded in 1917, the  New Mexico Museum of Art was built around a Courtyard Garden.  The garden was first tended by the SFGC in 1951.  Over the years, dedication to this garden forged a partnership between the Museum staff and SFGC members.  

Entering its centennial year, the Museum recognized that 100 years had taken a toll and extensive repairs were required to the infrastructure that would require the near total destruction of the garden. SFGC members rallied to form a committee, establish a budget and appropriate funds for the garden’s redesign and installation.   Plans included a modern irrigation system to prevent any future water damage to the offices below.  The garden features plants indigenous to New Mexico as well as other hardy perennials and small evergreens.  The lawn and enlarged walkway that borders the garden will insure that the space continues to be the center of many Museum events.

The text reads:

I am a member of the Santa Fe Garden Club, and within the club, I am on the Conservation Committee. Besides dispersing money to worthwhile organizations within the community and state, this committee is also dedicated to an area of river to clean on a regular basis. Originally, I would sign up and occasionally clean the area, and [I] eventually just started handling the whole operation. It takes some coordination, including arranging two volunteers twice per month, making sure they have the necessary tools and training. Then there are reports to write! Sometimes, when no one volunteers, I’ll just go down and clean it myself. Occasionally, my husband Dan will stand on the Delgado Street Bridge and watch over me! I want to see the river be a beautiful, safe place that all of our citizens and visitors can enjoy.
