Located in the Turney Mansion, circa 1910, the International Museum of Art is operated by The International Association for the Visual Arts. The museum features artwork by local and national artists.

A casita reproduction from the Mexican Revolution era is part of this exhibit. Upcoming exhibit: 2013 Sun Bowl Art Exhibit. 14th ANNUAL SUN BOWL ART EXHIBITION An overview and history about our exhibit The annual art competition and exhibit is a revival of the great El Paso art tradition known as the Sun Carnival Art Exhibit, which began in 1949. This exhibit will showcase works by living artist and serve to enhance the International Museum of Art’s permanent collection. We have extended an invitation to artists worldwide to be a part of this exhibition. This year’s judge is renowned artist Aleksander Titovets.
