Sort of out of the way, maybe just not my taste- I was hoping to see more local art and antiques. Felt like college art really funky- maybe interesting to look at but not something I'd hang on the wall. Not many antiques at all.

So many interesting things/art to explore packed into a small place. Some of the best stuff is upstairs, "hidden" away in a tiny room. Take your time with this one, folks.

I like the big painting on the outside of the building. A child with a wagon. The art is a little over the top for me but it is interesting. You never know what is on display.

Our son invited us to go to the art show this past weekend and it was amazing. While checking out the artists work we signed up for a raffle that they were doing that evening. I dont seem to have much luck but it must have been in the stars, because I was the winner of the raffle. We also... More

Art Obscura is an excellent, artistic establishment with its own Las Cruces charm. It was great to see local artists being supported and represented.
