New Mexico is getting a bequest of American Indian art and an adobe home to house it, according to the Associated Press:
A southern New Mexico artist and her husband have made a bequest of their American Indian art collection and a 6,750-square-foot adobe home to the Museum of New Mexico. The multimillion-dollar bequest from artist Sallie Ritter and her husband, Doctor Kent Jacobs, has been accepted by the board of regents of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation. It also includes a surrounding six-acre parcel of land and an endowment fund. The couple has an extensive collection of American Indian pottery and textiles. The home south of Las Cruces will become a branch museum known as the New Mexico Museum of Art Jacobs-Ritter Compound.
