“Wonderful contemporary art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

If you like contemporary art,don't miss this. Don't be put off by the rather unattractive exterior, because the inside is very, very good ... spacious and with excellent art.

“Hours of inspiration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Fantastic collection in this museum! Broad and diverse, the pieces represent over forty years of an artist in residence program supporting folks who work in almost every medium. We only have a couple of hours but I could have stayed for a while longer and come back the next day. Various artists deserved a bit of time and attention on their own. Taking it all in at one time can be a bit overwhelming! Well done and an example of what committed and sustained philanthropy can achieved.

“A broad collection of modern and contemporary art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Before you hit the UFO museum, head to AMOCA for a treasure trove of art. Hung salon style, this place has representations of everything you could want from the 20 th/21st century. Friendly staff.

“Surprising "gem" in Roswell!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

I was totally surprised with the contemporary art at the Anderson Museum --- it was at a quality level of a major city. I don't know that much about contemporary art, but the layout of the museum really seemed to have a logical "flow" through the museum.

“Modern Art Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Roswell has two excellent art museums and the Anderson, while small, has an excellent collection of really fine pieces. The collection is eclectic and includes sculpture as well as paintings and fiber arts. While some of the pieces have a New Mexican or Southwestern feel the bulk are simply excellent examples of fine art. Well worth a visit. Caution, though, the hours are fewer than one would expect.
