NMPCA members: Tomorrow begins the much anticipated NCECA Critical Santa Fe symposium. As you are aware, we sponsored a scholarship contest to send two members, Betsy Williams and Andres Payan. Several other members are planning to attend the event as well. I will be there. I know that some of you are not able to attend, but are interested in the outcomes and discussions. I would like to extend an open invitation to any NMPCA member to send me via email a question they would like me to ask at the symposium…if I get a chance. Below is a message from the event organizer and NMPCA member, Jim Romberg, with a link to some interesting on-line reading materials that may give you some ideas of questions you want me to ask.
If my energy level supports it, I will also plan to type a little blog with my impressions each day after the events.
Dear CRITICAL Santa Fe Participants:
Everything is shaping up well for the Symposium . When you arrive registration is being held on the upstairs balcony so just follow the signs in the lobby. Registration packets with the Symposium schedule, speaker information , useful information about Santa Fe and gallery announcements and maps will be waiting for you .
In preparation for this event we have posted some reading material on the NCECA website on the CRITICAL Santa Fe link http://nceca.net/static/symposia_santafe.php. The one entitled “Infrequently Asked Questions” is provocative and gives you the opportunity to submit some of your thoughts.
If any of you are arriving on Tuesday there is a grand opening of the exhibition titled “Critical Chaos” at the Santa Fe Community College on Tuesday from 4:30 -7:30.
Travel well and we will see you soon.
Jim Romberg, NCECA and the Planning Committee
