Community Partnerships

The Dona Ana Arts Council works with many different partners to contribute to the wellbeing of Southern New Mexico by developing accessible cultural opportunities for those who live, work, and visit Las Cruces and the greater Mesilla Valley. Through the promotion and value of partnerships, we assist the community in maximizing resources and add value to the work they do.

Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces


Effective communities have many different kinds of partnerships—each appropriately linked to the others. The Dona Ana Arts Council shares the spirit, culture and tradition of Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces.  


Our partnership through the Heritage Hotels and Resorts allows for a mutually beneficial exchange of creative ideas that support the needs of our New Mexico community. Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces in it’s support of the Dona Ana Arts Council’s artistic and educational endeavors and performing arts at the historic Rio Grande Theatre strengthens our commitment to Las Cruces and Southern Dona Ana County.   We stand in appreciation for the support we share in our community partnerships.
