Schools and Public Buildings from the New Deal Era, some of which house New Deal art.

Use the following identifiers when you go sleuthing through New Mexico to find the buildings and structures built by the New Deal (ND); find the ones that also have ND public art in them (ND/Art), find the ones that have furniture and fixtures gracing them (ND/Furniture & fixtures); and finally the public buildings that were not built by the New Deal but have the fortune of displaying the ND art in them. (ART ONLY).
