Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in New Mexico

National Hispanic Cultural Center

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM examines race and identity in New Mexico and is a space for artistic expression that grapples with the complexities of who we are, how we are understood, and how that impacts the way we live (or don’t) in a variety of places.  The exhibition features approximately 26 newly created artworks by artists with different experiences in New Mexico alongside works from the National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum’s permanent collection. All of the artworks delve into  race and place through an intersectional lens alongside gender, sexuality, class, nationality, citizenship status, etc. from local, national, and international perspectives.

Bandelier Celebrates 

November Year of the Bird

Bandelier celebrates the Year of the Bird in November and joins National Geographic encouraging everyone to appreciate wildlife through photography.  A photo contest, held by Bandelier,  focusing on the theme “the beauty and wonder of birds in nature”  will run November 1-16, 2018. Up to three photos per person may be submitted to: band_visitor_center@nps.gov

Photos submitted become the property of the National Park Service and will be judged at  the end of the month; winners will be announced on the Bandelier Facebook page.

Contest prizes, courtesy of The Friends of Bandelier and Western National Parks Association, are as follows: First place – an $80 Interagency Annual Pass and a gift bag, second and third places  – a $40 Bandelier Annual Entrance Pass.

To promote the contest and hone your photography skills, join a ranger this Saturday, November 3 at 9am on a bird photography walk. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water.  Meet outside the Bandelier Visitor Center in Frijoles Canyon.

November’s bird of the month is the Wild Turkey.  Wild Turkeys can be seen in Bandelier year-round near roads and throughout mature forest areas.  You may see them foraging on the ground for nuts, berries, insects, and snails.  Turkeys were very important to Ancestral Puebloan people and remain an important part of Pueblo life today.  To learn more, join the Los Alamos Nature Center and Bandelier staff for Nature on Tap: “Turkeys in the Past at Bandelier” at Unquarked Wine Bar on Monday, November 5 at 5:30 pm for a more detailed discussion.

Last month, Year of the Bird’s Global Big Day goals were surpassed. The public was asked to eBird their bird sightings on October 6th with a goal of logging at least 5000 species. Over 6,000 species were recorded on over 37,000 checklists around the world! Thank you to all who participated.

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL ADOPT A SENIOR PET MONTH

SANTA FE ANIMAL SHELTER TO WAIVE ADOPTION FEES ON ALL ADULT SENIOR PETS FOR THEIR LOVE IS AGELESS PROMOTION

*** B-Roll Video at the bottom of this announcement ***

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter announced today that they are waving the adoption fee on all senior pets in November for Adopt a Senior Pet Month.

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter is working to make sure every senior pet finds a home!

The fee-waived adoptions include all dogs six years and older and all cats nine years and older under their Love is Ageless promotion.

“The surprising secret is that older dogs offer a lot of benefits to potential new families,” says Murad Kirdar, the public relations officer for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter.  “Most senior dogs are already housebroken, don’t require the constant monitoring that puppies and kittens do, and are usually trained, yet they are still trainable if you want to teach them a new skill.”

Santa Fe Animal Shelter who is northern New Mexico’s largest open-admission, no-kill shelter, will hold its Love is Ageless promotion at the shelter’s main campus, located at 100 Caja del Río, from 11 am to 6 pm daily.

“Senior pets seem to know they’ve been rescued and are being given a second chance in life,” says Kirdar.  “New families often notice an extra special sense of love and appreciation from their adopted senior pet.”

The Love is Ageless promotion runs until November 30th at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter.

For more information on available animals visit SFHumaneSociety.org
