Michael Miller

I grew up in Santa Fe in the 1950's and 60's.  I graduated from St. Mikes's in 1967. I served as Director of the New Mexico Records Center and Archives, Director of the Center for Southwest Research, UNM, and retired as Director of Research and Literary Arts at the National Hispanic Cultural Center of New Mexico.  Today, I am involved in the preservation of New Mexico's environment and cultural heritage. I volunteer for a number of organizations and I am particularly interested in working with young people.  I believe that the traditional values of NM and the rich heritage passed on by our ancestors is one of the most important ways to reach out to our young people and help eliminate many of the social, economic, environmental, and political problems created in the 21st century.  Family values, culture, tradition, respect for the Earth, spirituality, preservation of our natural resources and traditional knowledge must be passed on to the next generation to help them cope with the world today.  I believe that it is the responsibility of every adult to mentor and nourish the minds of the young.  I enjoy flyfishing, bow hunting, farming, and the wonders of nature.

Mision y Convento, Plaza de Espanola

Panels 4 and 5 are two examples of Richard Guzman's twelve part series of murals on the visual History of New Mexico located at the Mision y Convento, Plaza de Espanola.  Guzman's painting style has been described as  "robust, expressionistic, energetic with sweeping use of color and skillfull harmonies. These attributes are born of close observation of subject matter, countless hours of painting, and boundless love of the craft of painting." Richard Guzman is from Truchas, New Mexico.
