Art of New Mexico to Benefit Anderson Schools

May 1, 2000

ALBUQUERQUE Ė While some may think the worlds of art and business are two different universes, a special event hosted by The University of New Mexicoís Anderson Schools of Management is proof the two are complementary.

Robert Rikoon, President of Santa Feís Rikoon Investment Counsel and recognized by Worth magazine as one of the nationís top financial advisors, developed his skill as a painter while earning his MBA at The Anderson Schools. Since his days studying management and finance, his art has become regionally recognized Ė including being featured in a New Mexico poster series and at the Albuquerque Sunport.

On Friday, May 12, the offices of Rikoon Investment Counsel will transform into an art gallery. The event, including light food and libations by Santa Feís famed La Fonda, will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at 204-A Guadalupe in Santa Fe.

All proceeds of art sales will benefit the Deanís Fund at The Anderson Schools. The Deanís Fund includes scholarships for students and rewards faculty for outstanding research and service.

For more information about the event, call 277-0880.
