Painter Agnes Martin
Full interview by Mike Tilley from March 22, 2002 - 20 minutes

Agnes Martin died Dec. 16th 2004 at her home in Taos.

The generosity of Agnes Martin to the people of Taos and the other communities where she lived is matched by few other donors. As an Olympic swimmer in her youth, she particularly cared about the importance of swimming and made incredible contributions to make this accessible to many in the future. With the encouragement and persistent urging of another caring artist in Taos, she also make huge contributions to arts, environmental, historical, health and youth organizations. In addition to her enormous expression of independence as an artist, she will be much missed for her unassuming and quiet support of beauty and good in our community.

Palestian Heyam Khweis talks to Lisa Fox thanking Taoseños
for gathering more than 2,000 signatures in a petition to Senator Bingaman, who has agreed to sponsor a private bill to allow her family to stay in the United States. 13 minutes

Immigration has granted a 2 year stay for the Khweis family until Bingaman's bill can be voted on. The bill will need much public support, since it must still pass both the Senate & House and be signed by the President.
