The Historical Society of New Mexico’s 2012 Statehood History Conference: From Pig Roasts to Butch Cassidy, Territorial Spies and More
Plus: A Free Statehood Symposium at the New Mexico History Museum
Santa Fe (February 21, 2012) – Outlaws, Rough Riders, classic restaurants and a possible spy will come to life at the 2012 New Mexico Statehood History Conference, May 3-5, in Santa Fe. Presented by the Historical Society of New Mexico and the New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors, this Centennial version of the Society’s annual conference includes a special treat: A daylong free symposium, open to the public, plus free admission to the History Museum on May 3.
The conference, May 4 and 5 at the Santa Fe Convention and Visitors Center, is held in collaboration with the New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance, which is having its annual conference at La Posada that weekend. Details, including special hotel rates and how to register for all or part of the Statehood History Conference, are at the Historical Society’s web site: http://www.hsnm.org/2012%20Items/home__2012_conference.htm.
“Whether you’re interested in the Centennial or New Mexico history in general, we’re gathering writers and historians you’ll enjoy meeting and whose research is sure to enlighten you,” said Mike Stevenson, president of the Historical Society. “Holding this year’s event in the capital city, where lawmakers worked so hard to move the Territory toward statehood, means we’ll be surrounded by history indoors at the sessions and outdoors strolling the streets of Santa Fe.”
The Las Cruces Museum of Art commemorates New Mexico’s century of statehood in an exhibition “New Mexico: 100 Years of Art”, featuring the work of artists from the last century (1912-2012). The exhibit tells the on-going story of New Mexico artists including works of art by Peter Hurd, Luis Jimenez, Agnes Martin, Michael Naranjo, T.C. Cannon, Georgia O’Keeffe, Fremont Ellis, Henriette Wyeth, Gustave Baumann, and many others.
