For the second year now the University of New Mexico will be offering a degree program in Art & Ecology. The program is offered in the Department of Art and Art History at the university, which is located in Alberquerque.
The university considers the program a signature discipline and says it can prepare students for careers as fine artists, educators, public artists, land use interpreters or activists.
The UNM site says the program builds "from the successful D.H. Lawrence Summer Arts Projects, Southwest Geographic Arts and Land Arts of the American West courses", and "provides a full curriculum based on the environments and communities of the southwest. Courses are designed to further students' understanding of representation, land use, ecology, and classic Land Art in the Southwest."
