Friends of Coronado Historic Site Present
“The Architecture of John Gaw Meem”
By Audra Bellmore, PhD, Curator for the Center for SW Research at UNM
Sunday, September 21, at 2PM
Audra Bellmore is an expert on the architect John Gaw Meem, who came to New Mexico seeking a cure for his tuberculosis, stayed, and eventually became influential in popularizing the Spanish Pueblo Revival Style that is predominant in Albuquerque and Santa Fe today. You can enjoy one of his designs when you come to the Visitor Center on the Grounds of Coronado Historic site as well as many prominent buildings in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe area including the campus buildings of UNM. Meem’s life is a fascinating story and is sure to be of interest to history buffs, architects, artists and general audience who want to learn more about the evolution of the “Look” that defines New Mexico.
