Photo essay: NMHU students’ installations at Jemez Pueblo Visitors’ Center

Students from the Program for Interactive Cultural Technology (PICT) and New Mexico Highlands University install their work at the Jemez Historic Site visitors’ center Friday, May 3. Not only do our students engage with significant projects like these, they consistently land internships and careers with similar organizations such as Meow Wolf, the Bradbury Science Museum at Los Alamos, SITE Santa Fe, and many other exciting organizations. The students are part of the Media Arts program at Highlands. Learn more here to find out what you can bring to the floor. Photos by Rick Loffredo, New Mexico Highlands University
