Santa Fe and Taos have art scenes with worldwide reputations, but New Mexico’s largest city isn’t quite as widely recognized. But there is a deep history here in Albuquerque and this week New Mexico PBS KNME premiers a documentary exploring the work of Albuquerque painters.

KUNM's Chris Boros chatted with Gwyneth Doland about bills that did not pass at the state legislature this session. It's part of our People, Power and Democracy reporting project. Our partners are New Mexico In Depth, New Mexico PBS and the UNM Communication and Journalism Department. 

KUNM: We heard from you this morning about some of the bills that passed and are awaiting the governor's signature. But that was only a couple hundred bills. And there are many, many more that did not make it.

The photograph "Migrant Mother" is one of the most recognized and captivating images in the world. The image has represented the suffering of America's Great Depression. Yet few know the story, struggles and impressive body of work of the woman behind the camera: Dorothea Lange.  


Public television’s Antiques Roadshow visits the Albuquerque Convention Center Saturday as part of an eight-city summer tour. The show appraises antiques from locals who are hoping to cash in on their prized possessions. 

KUNM's Chris Boros spoke with Marsha Bemko, the show’s Executive Producer.  She says the show has visited New Mexico on multiple occasions. Antiques Roadshow is taping three episodes in Albuquerque for broadcast next year.
