RAiR Foundation resident artist Masha Sha has been working on a series of large scale drawings emphasizing the graphic and poetic nature of words. As a Russian artist living in the United States, Masha is engaging in a visual relationship with language that is always in a state of improvisation.
Do you love crosswords, hidden object and logic puzzles? Put your observation and puzzle-solving skills to the test! The artists in the Roswell Artist-in-Residence (RAiR) program have been keeping a secret for more than 50 years, leaving clues to it in their artworks. Can you discover the secret?
As a small fundraiser, “The RMAC Puzzle Room: A RAiR Secret” has opened in one of the museum’s galleries and will run through February 2020. Similar to an escape room, participants are introduced to a fictional storyline, tied to objects from the permanent collection, which directs them to solve enough puzzles to discover “a RAiR secret” in 60 minutes. The activity is geared to ages 16 and older with an interest in logic and word puzzles. The fee is $5 per person and the activity will accommodate three to five players. Precautions have been taken to ensure there is little to touch, and the space will be disinfected between groups.
Reservations are required. The Puzzle Room is available during museum visiting hours, Tuesday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. However, staff will try to accommodate groups who require a different timeframe. To make a reservation, please call 575-624-6744.
In accordance with state requirements, visitors are required to wear face coverings; complimentary masks will be provided for guests who need one. Those who are not feeling well and people with serious medical conditions should delay their visit until a safer time. Thank you!
