THE GREAT SOUTHWESTERN ART & EDUCATION ENDOWMENT
The Land of Enchantment is a special place, and for over 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 summer, as part of their Expo NM show, The Great Southwestern Antique and Vintage Show in Albuquerque holds a special opening event that benefits New Mexico PBS. The Charity Sneak Preview ($100 donation) will take place on August 2 from 1-6pm with 100% of Sneak Preview Admissions going directly to our KNME PBS Endowment. This endowment currently provides funding for New Mexico art and education programming.
Special Exhibition: The Skip Gentry Fred Harvey Collection.
Danyelle Gentry Peterson will be on hand with her brother, Beau, to answer questions as they present their father’s life’s work: the largest collection of Fred Harvey Corporation memorabilia. The impressive collection encompasses diverse enterprises from restaurants to train service, Native American arts & crafts, gift shops, tourism and auto detours and more.
New Mexico PBS thanks everyone who attends this special event.
