SANTA FE—Former Gov. Bill Richardson was recognized for his work to advance the arts in New Mexico and make them more accessible to all New Mexicans.
Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading non-profit organization for advancing the arts, and The United States Conference of Mayors selected Richardson for their 2011 Public Leadership in the Arts Award.
The award was presented Thursday during The United States Conference of Mayors 79th annual winter meeting.
“As a devoted supporter of the arts — in all forms — I am honored by this recognition,” Richardson said. “I’ve always been guided by the belief that artistic endeavors not only enrich our quality of life, but also serve as important economic drivers. I am proud of everything we were able to accomplish during my eight years in office.”
The organizations cited many of his accomplishments in the arts.
