This year, the Foundation’s Annual Architectural Tour took participants to places deeper into the cultural fabric of Santa Fe. A new (old) Santa Fe was revealed.
During the Oct. 15 tour, there was the beautiful and memorable architecture at each site, along with the stimulating people. And, the spectacular New Mexico autumn weather framed it all.
“The tour extended our appreciation of the history, culture, and magic of Santa Fe,” said Foundation member Roy Hertweck. “I was most impressed with the human drama of design and education in New Mexico.”
Special thanks to UNM’s Audra Bellmore for arranging her first annual tour and to all who helped make another our 29th annual architectural tour a success.
