Arts & Culture

Silver City is one of the first New Mexico towns to be designated as an Arts & Cultural District, and provided opportunities for Silver City to become part of a larger effort to promote our diverse western cultural and heritage to residents and visitors. Arts & Culture offerings, along with our Silver City Main Street Project, welcome visitors from all over the world year 'round.
