Santa Fe art tour 

Alumni and friends of UNT gathered in Santa Fe for a weekend in May that featured tours of 14 galleries with connections to the university. The "Weaving Threads of Green: UNT in Santa Fe" event celebrated the university's legacy of artistic excellence while connecting people who share an interest in fine art.

During a reception with President Gretchen M. Bataille and celebrated sculptor Jesús Moroles ('78) and artist Bill Worrell ('74 M.F.A.), Grammy Award-winning brothers Aaron and Greg White jammed with former Doors drummer John Densmore. Aaron, a flute-maker grounded in Navajo and Ute tradition, presented Bataille with his hand-carved wooden flute depicting an eagle with a turquoise eye.

Guests included alumni Tony Altermann ('65, '68 M.S.) and Linda Altermann, owners of the prestigious Altermann Gallery, as well as sculptor Rebecca Tobey, whose three children are UNT alumni, and Donna Howell-Sickles, artist and National Cowgirl Hall of Fame member, and her husband, John.
