The UNM Art Museum presents guest curator Lois Rudnick in a lecture on "Under the Skin of New Mexico: The Life, Art, and Times of Cady Wells" on Tuesday, March 8, at 5:30 p.m. The lecture accompanies the Cady Wells exhibit in the museum's Raymond Jonson Gallery through May 22.

Rudnick, professor emerita, University of Massachusetts, Boston, will provide biographical, historical, and cultural contexts for understanding Wells' life, art and patronage in relation to the development of modern regional and national art and culture, including his relationship with Martha Graham, who visited him several times in the post-World War II era.

The Making New Mexico Modern series is funded in part by a grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council and is designated by the NMHC and National Endowment for the Humanities as a We The People project.

The UNM Art Museum in the Center for the Arts is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 1-4 p.m. Call (505) 277.4001 or visit
