One thought on “New Mexico Museum of Art Community Meeting TODAY!!!!”
I am so sorry to have missed this. I managed to call in during the closing remarks. I wanted to comment on my desire to see the multicultural mural be preserved as one way to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
I have lived in Santa Fe for 30 years and remember how this mural communicated to me as a teenager a story about what Santa Fe was about. I moved my senior year of high school so I missed learning about New Mexico history in elementary, middle, and even high school. The mural tells a visual history and story. It also creates a feeling about the place. It can also serve to create curiosity and communicate feelings that help different people identify with a place. Because the mural is in a prominent spot in downtown Santa Fe I believe there is a greater significance to restoring the mural for future generations and visitors. Perhaps we can look at other ways to raise funds for the restoration.
