Blue Star Museums Program
 
National Endowment for the Arts
Blue Star Museums Program

The El Paso Museum of Art continues to be a proud year round participant of the NEA’s Blue Star Museums Program which grants free admission to ticketed exhibitions for active military personnel and their families with valid ID. Active duty military include Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and active duty National Guard and active duty Reserve members.

Blue Star Museums
Blue Star Museums grew to more than 1,500 museums this past year, including over 700 museums that participated for the first time! This program enables us to thank our military families for their service and sacrifice to our country by inviting them to enjoy the best of American culture. Especially for families with limited time together, those on a limited budget, and ones that have to relocate frequently, Blue Star Museums offers an opportunity to enjoy one another and become more fully integrated into a community.

 
Organizational History and Mission Statement
 

Founded in 1959, the El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) is a major cultural and educational resource for West Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico. The Museum houses a permanent collection of over 6,000 works of art. In addition to displaying works from its holdings, the Museum offers a diverse schedule of temporary exhibitions, films, lectures, concerts, and other educational programs to the general public. EPMA has a steady record of accreditation by the American Association of Museums. The Museum was first accredited in 1972, then re-accredited in 1985 and, most recently, in 2001. Since the new downtown building opened in 1998, the Museum serves approximately 80,000 visitors per year.

The Mission Statement for the El Paso Museum of Art is:

To collect, interpret, preserve and exhibit works of art that maintain and support the strengths of the Museum’s permanent collections of American, European, and Mexican art. The Museum recognizes the region’s diverse cultures through exhibitions, acquisitions, educational programs and staff and board representation and is an education institution dedicated to scholarship and training while providing a stimulating aesthetic environment and resource of all audiences.

The Museum is municipally funded and is under the jurisdiction of the City of El Paso, Texas. EPMA, the only accredited art museum within a 250-mile radius, is located both in the heart of downtown El Paso and blocks away from the U.S.-Mexico border; it is situated within the world’s largest international border community with an approximate metropolitan population of over 2.6 million.
