March and April 2020…PRIDE in MEADOW CITY



















NMHU Media Arts graduate student Adolfo Castillo and Angela Meron, media arts and technology professor, are co-curating Pride in Meadow City, 40 years of New Mexico Pride.  

Pride in Meadow City, 40 years of New Mexico Pride, exhibits panels on loan from Albuquerque Pride, Inc. describing some of the stories and events of 40 years of Pride in New Mexico.  While everybody has their own individual story, these reflect the statewide efforts to establish  inclusion and equality.  There are also a series of photos from last year’s Las Vegas Pride Parade.  Prints of the photos by local ally Leon Bustos may be ordered for $35 each, and a few 8 x 10 color proofs are for sale at $20 each.

Originally from Houston, Adolfo Castillo earned his BFA from NMHU in May 2018, and is now working on his Master of Fine Arts degree in Media Arts and Cultural Technology, also at NMHU. In addition to his art and graphic design work, he is a highly valued intern at MainStreet de Las Vegas.  His work with the HU Prism Club helped produce the 2019 Pride Parade in Las Vegas.

PRISM (Promoting Respect for Identity and Sexuality Movement) is a chartered club and is the first of its kind at New Mexico Highlands University. Its focus is to promote the respect for identity and sexuality, educating the campus and community of LGBTQAI+ issues, supporting inclusion for all individuals on campus and empowering LGBTQAI+ folks in NMHU’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. PRISM has started raising money by participating in the Club Carnival and has been active by participating in the NMHU Homecoming parade.

Angela Meron, NMHU faculty, visual artist and graphic designer, joined the Department of Media Arts & Technology at New Mexico Highlands University following one year as Adjunct Faculty at Simpson College. In addition to teaching graphic design, typography, color theory, and drawing, teaches popular social painting classes while continuing to freelance. Her focus is design – teaching and designing for print, web and social media, interior spaces and a life.
