LAS CRUCES - New Mexico State University and partners broke ground on a new visual arts building and gallery Tuesday.
NMSU’s Board of Regents voted earlier this month to name the building Devasthali Hall in honor of Ammu and Rama Devasthali, who have championed the project for several years.
“Rama and I are deeply appreciative of the honor that Chancellor (Garrey) Carruthers and the university have bestowed on us by naming the soon-to-be-constructed art building Devasthali Hall,” Ammu Devasthali said. “It seems almost unbelievable that this building is actually going from being an ambitious dream to reality.
“Thanks to the chancellor, the NMSU Foundation, the art faculty, students, alumni and our community for believing in this vision. It took all of our efforts and financial backing, and in the end, this facility will be well worth it. Our students deserve nothing less.”
