Watch for the 2017 Brainpower & Brownbags Lecture Schedule Starting in April!
Brainpower & Brownbags will take a 3-month hiatus beginning in January and will return to its monthly schedule on April 5, 2017. The Palace Guard support group has agreed to take on this program, and to sponsor and manage the series so that it can continue to be offered by the History Museum free of charge.
As the Palace Guard plans the 2017 lecture schedule, we invite you to share your ideas and comments. Do you know of a scholar or author who would make a good speaker? Do you have favorite topics in New Mexico history that you’d like to hear more about? For more information or to share your comments, please email the Palace Guard Steering Committee Chairman, Michael Ettema, at email@example.com.
The Palace Guard is a Museum of New Mexico Foundation support group for the New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors. They offer our members a unique array of events and tours that explore the people, places, and stories that help us better understand our region’s history. Funds collected through dues, donations, and programs help the New Mexico History Museum and the Palace of the Governors collect, preserve, and interpret the historical materials of New Mexico and the Southwest.
