Lensic Presents CAVU's UNEARTHED: Is New Mexico Ready to be the Next Saudi Arabia?

Lensic Presents CAVU's UNEARTHED: Is New Mexico Ready to be the Next Saudi Arabia?

October 9, 2018   7:00 PM

The evening will include a short film premiere by CAVU, UNEARTHED: Is NM Ready to be the Next Saudi Arabia?, and following, we've assembled a dynamic panel to discuss these issues and the opportunities they present in New Mexico. Panel members include: Michelle Lujan Grisham, U.S. Congresswoman and NM Gubernatorial Candidate; Garrett VeneKlasen, Public Lands, Water & Wildlife Consultant; Alisa Ogden, 6th generation Eddy County Rancher; Jon Goldstein, Environmental Defense Fund; Darryl Weflen, CEO, International Methane Capture Firm; and moderated by award-winning journalist: Laura Paskus.

The oil boom in southeastern New Mexico has grown to rival international plays in Russia and Saudi Arabia. The Permian Basin alone accounts for one-third of all U.S. production and royalties to New Mexico will exceed $1.2 billion this year.

While this is great news for our budget, is New Mexico really prepared to be the next Saudi Arabia? Do we have adequate policies in place that protect public health, improve local infrastructure, and address pollution concerns? What will this mean for our rural communities and public lands?

Tickets: $10 | Reserved Seating

Tuesday, September 11 at 10 am - Lensic Member Presale ($100 Level and above)
Thursday, September 13 at 10 am - Tickets available to all.

AMP Concerts present Graham Nash

October 17, 2018   7:30 PM

Tickets go on sale to AMP Concerts members on Tuesday, July 31. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 3.

Legendary artist Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted twice into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner.

Towering above virtually everything that Graham Nash has accomplished in his long and multi-faceted career, stands the litany of songs that he has written and introduced to the soundtrack of the past half-century. His remarkable body of work, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies opus from 1964 to ’68, including “Stop Stop Stop,” “Pay You Back With Interest,” “On A Carousel,” “Carrie Anne,” “King Midas In Reverse,” and “Jennifer Eccles,” continues all the way to This Path Tonight (2016), his most recent solo album.

The best way to experience the music, warmth and wisdom of Snatam Kaur is live in concert.

“The concert is an occasion for people to become awakened to the power of mantra,” she says; “to fall in love with mantras and experience them in their purest form. With these concerts I hope to connect with people so that they get a sense of light and love. That is so important these days, with the political climate and environmental challenges we face. I know for myself that chanting together in these settings is healing and powerful for relieving stress, tension and that feeling of overwhelm that I think is common for all of us in this day and age. It’s a way for people to come and find that sense of peace again.”
