Follow Us:


Located at the western limit of the Las Cruces downtown arts district, the West End Art Depot provides a space for artists of all mediums to work and teach in a communal setting and benefit from shared resources. As a cooperative and arts incubator, we offer the freedom and resources necessary to generate original and relevant art while encouraging the artistic development of our youth.


Our ultimate goal is to support and enhance both artistic production and awareness in Las Cruces and Southern New Mexico through exhibits, education, outreach programs and partnering with like-minded agencies. We are seeking individuals to become part of this youth-oriented community project, who are willing to help organize and establish an art cooperative that is united, productive, and creatively ever-evolving.
