Giving to the Museum and Gardens
Your gifts enable the Museum and the Gardens to preserve, conserve, and improve the building, the grounds, and the collections.
In the past
years, donations have enabled the Museum to hire a professional conservator for "The Conquistadors" mural by Salvador López. After its restoration the mural was covered by a set of glass doors designed especially for the piece.
||The lintel above the Museum’s front door was designed by El Paso artist Tom Lea; cleaned and repaired, this eight-ton work of art dominates the Museum’s Jubilee Square.
Numerous plants and furnishings in the Gardens have been donated in remembrance of loved ones. Gardens staff will be happy to talk to you about possibilities.
