This exhibition has an extensive series of free public lectures. To see the full list go to http://media.museumofnewmexico.org/ and click on events then institution (Palace of the Governors)and you will see them all.

Also, in October the new photo curator at the New Mexico Museum of Art comes on board, Kate Ware - so expect to see some action at the museum with its own extensive collection.
