Philippe de Montebello Lecture

Art Santa Fe Presents, Inc., Santa Fe, NM

2005

Art Santa Fe Presents, an organization dedicated to bringing top-level art world speakers to Santa Fe, received support for costs associated with bringing Philippe de Montebello, Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to Santa Fe in July 2005.  This was one of only three lectures given by Mr. de Montebello that year.  His talk addressed the topic “Museums: Why Should We Care?”, an impassioned argument for the enduring value of art.
