The Land of Enchantment is a special place, and for the past 60 years New Mexico PBS, KNME, has been exporting the art and culture of our state through its unique programming. Public Television provides the opportunity to learn about diverse art and culture from every corner of the globe. The Great Southwestern Art and Education Endowment fund, held at the Albuquerque Community Foundation, was established to assist us in that mission.

Every year, three great local arts shows are assembled: The Great Southwestern Antique Show in Albuquerque, and Objects of Art Santa Fe and The Antique American Indian Art Show in Santa Fe. Your attendance at the opening night events of all three shows benefits New Mexico PBS by providing valuable resources to the Endowment fund.


With your donation of $150 to the Great Southwestern New Mexico PBS Art and Education Endowment, you’ll get access to all three opening night events! All of the opening night proceeds will benefit New Mexico PBS. Your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law. Multi-event tickets available now.

Please contact Development Director Theresa Spencer at 505.277.1225 or for more information.
