New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Sunday the four state museums, eight historic sites and the Office of Archaeological Studies will be closed beginning Monday, March 16, in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
The Museum of New Mexico Foundation has developed contingency plans for the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our primary concern is the health and safety of Foundation members along with our trustees, staff, friends and supporters. The Foundation is postponing all member events scheduled through April 30, 2020, in order to minimize public health risks from the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Foundation’s offices are open until further notice.
The four state museums and museum shops in Santa Fe are also open, as are seven of the eight Historic Sites statewide, and the Center for New Mexico Archaeology. This is subject to change by the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs as the situation develops. We are closely monitoring recommendations from the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs and New Mexico Department of Health.

Circles Japan Trip Day Two: A visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fushimi Inari Taisha, a unique site among Japanese Shinto Shrines, where a pathway of 10,000 vermillion-colored torii gates stretch 2.5 miles up the hillside. Next stop was to Ginkakuji, the Silver Pavillion, formerly known as Jishojo. We then moved onward to Saihoji Moss Temple. For our final stop we visited Japanese contemporary artist Kohei Nawa’s studio. Photos could not be taken at his studio as sculptures for an upcoming exhibition were in the process of being created. Nawa is known for his PixelCell series and recently, his large scale installation “Thrown” was on view in the Louvre Pyramid from July 2018 to February 2019.
Circles Japan Trip Day One:
Kyoto’s Ryoanji Temple, a visit to fifth generation goldleaf artisan Noguchi Yasushi’s home and studio, a bento box lunch in Miyagawa and a trip to the Miho Museum that houses antiquities from Asia and Asia Minor.
