Tree-lined and sedate, Lomas on the north side of the University of New Mexico campus is a pleasant thoroughfare. The Spanish Pueblo Revival is the prevalent architectural style of this stable residential community. Students and professors can be found in this area at most times of the day, creating an atmosphere of intellectual excitement and diversity.
To the south, a roadway leads onto the campus of the university. Nearby lies the University Art Museum, a fantastic multi-level structure that focuses on 19th and 20th century European and American artists. The Johnson Gallery, which features more than 600 works by the late Raymond Johnson, is also part of the Center for the Arts. The gallery, heralded as a "monument to modern art," once served as an example of the complete life of an artist, with an upstairs living quarters and downstairs gallery, studio, office, storage rooms and conference space.
