We the People at UNM Museum

Just in time for the election here in New Mexico is the "We The People" show at the UNM Museum. For those of you who have never visited our UNM Museum (and I am sure that is a lot of you) take the time to do so if you are in the area. The archive is enormous and has a great selection of photos from throughout history and also an amazing staff to show them to you on appointment. Call ahead and make an appointment to see some William Henry Jackson, Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, a John Pfahl, the list goes on and on.

"Democracy and expressions
of patriotism take many
forms in We the People, an
exhibition drawn from the
UNM Art Museum’s
permanent photography collection which
celebrates Article 2 of the United States
Constitution. This article provides for the election
of a President and Vice President every four
years and subsequent amendments ensure that all
citizens 18 years of age and older, regardless of
race, color, or gender, have the right to vote. In
recognition of this important political season, we
offer these works as inspiration of our citizen’s
rights and responsibilities."
