First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare: Only New Mexico venue for one of the world’s most influential and valuable books celebrating 400 Years of Shakespeare in 2016
Fans of the Bard of Avon don’t have to wait too much longer to view the national traveling exhibition First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare, on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library opening at the New Mexico Museum of Art on February 6, 2016 and running through February 28, 2016.
It has been 400 years since Shakespeare died in Stratford-on-Avon, England, on April 23, 1616. Honoring this milestone, the esteemed Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., has created this traveling exhibition of the Shakespeare First Folio, the 17th century first edition of the volume that introduced his work to the world. The New Mexico Museum of Art is the only venue in the state to view the First Folio. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for New Mexicans and other museum visitors to see an original 1623 First Folio—one of the world’s most influential and valuable books, and the original printed source for 18 of Shakespeare’s 38 plays.

Oblique Views: Archaeology, Photography, and Time
The story of the Southwest told through the aerial photographs of Charles and Anne Lindbergh and Adriel Heisey
During 2007 and 2008, flying at alarmingly low altitudes and slow speeds, Adriel Heisey leaned out the door of his light plane, and holding his camera with both hands, re-photographed some of the Southwest’s most significant archaeological sites that Charles Lindbergh and his new bride Anne photographed in 1929. For the first time in Oblique Views: Archaeology, Photography, and Time, large prints of Heisey’s stunning images will be paired directly with the Lindberghs’.
Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy
Will Rogers noted that Fred Harvey “kept the West in food—and wives.” But the company’s Harvey Girls are by no means its only legacy. From the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway’s 1879 arrival in New Mexico to the 1970 demolition of Albuquerque’s Alvarado Hotel, the Fred Harvey name and its company’s influence have been felt across New Mexico, not to mention the American West. The company and its New Mexico establishments set new standards for hospitality, architecture and authentic tourist experiences. Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy focuses on the rise of the Fred Harvey Company as a family business and events that transpired specifically in the Land of Enchantment. The tale will leave visitors with an understanding of how the Harvey experience resonates in our Southwest today. media.newmexicoculture.org/events.php?action=detail&eventID=1950
