The luncheon ceremony took place in the William Lumpkins Ballroom at La Fonda Hotel followed by an exhibition opening and public reception in the Governor’s Gallery at the state Capitol.

The Governor’s Arts Awards were establish in 1974 as a way of celebrating the significant roles artists have played in the state, both economically and culturally. Gov. Gary Johnson, first lady Dee Johnson and members of the New Mexico Arts Commission chose the recipients, who were nominated by local arts groups and citizens.
