Museum of Heritage & Arts


Just Marilyn...

featuring the art of Marilyn Drake

Just Marilyn… will be on exhibit June 4 - June 30, 2016.

Among the many reasons Marilyn moved from New York City to New Mexico was the dramatic landscapes — the vistas, the light, the unusual geologic formations and native plants. That fascination awakened her desire to be a fine artist, after years spent operating a graphic design business.

In 2014 Marilyn Drake was named a “Local Treasure,” by the Albuquerque Art Business Association.

In the Fall of 2015 her piece, “Spring Thaw” (pictured), won Best of Show and two Judges Choice awards in the Museum of Heritage & Arts’ Third Annual Juried Art Show “Seasons”. As the winner, the museum awarded her an opportunity to exhibit her artwork.

The museum will be hosting an opening reception on Saturday, June 4th at 2:00pm.
