Some heroes don’t wear capes
Pasatiempo ushers in 2019 with a fresh cadre of community voices in our annual Unsung Heroes of the Arts issue. These individuals live and work beside us, printing the books we read, booking the movies we see, planning the events we attend, and caring for the artworks we visit at our favorite museums. We don’t always know them by name, but we benefit from their work. For this go-round, we focus on people active in museum environments, publishing, printmaking, marketing, local cinema, and other influential spheres. We salute these talented professionals, who play often uncredited but integral roles in making Santa Fe an arts and culture center.

For the third year, Pasatiempo pays tribute to local talent from all areas of the cultural scene, including curating, publishing, printmaking, marketing, and collections management, to name a few. These individuals may be backstage, in an office, or out in the field, but their skills and expertise are central to not only getting things done, but making them great. Santa Fe’s unsung heroes of art and culture are all around you. Isn’t it time you knew their names?
