    Exhibits

    The United States Flag Act of 1818 set forth a rule that no new stars could be added to Old Glory until the Fourth of July immediately following a state’s admission to the union. Thanks to that once-a-year-and-only-once-a-year mandate, New Mexicans hoping to share their pride at becoming the 47th state were essentially forced into committing their first illegal acts as U.S. citizens. Through Nov. 25, the New Mexico History Museum commemorates that dip into the dark side with “47 Stars,” an exhibit of the officially unofficial 47-star flag. For more information, call 476-5200.
    Film

    The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival kicks off with the New Mexico premier of “Bless Me Ultima,” based on the novel by Rudolfo Anaya. The festival runs through Sunday and will also feature “Tiger Eyes,” by Judy Blume. For more information and tickets, visit santafeiff.com.
