We all know how amazing NHCC is—beautiful exhibits, fabulous programming, breathtaking premises. And now, if it didn't before, the whole world knows, too. Or at least, the Frommer's-reading world.

In a little feature called "9 Must-See Museum Exhibits Around The World," NHCC is listed among the internationally-renowned likes of the Tate (London) and the Pompidou (Paris). Not bad, Burque. Not bad at all.

Now. Let's get NMSO on some lists* with the New York Philharmonic and New Mexico Ballet Co noted alongside the Russian National Ballet, and we'll be all set.


* I could make these lists. And I've thought about it. But maybe it would be more thrilling for ABQ if someone outside of the city were to recognize our treasure chest o' glorious cultural riches. Who do you know at the Washington Post? Get on it!
