On hearing news of the successful bid, Prof. Polli commented: "New Mexico is
unique not only as the site of the most ancient settlements in the country,
dating back to 1100 A.D., but as the site of many scientific breakthroughs
and controversies including the first atomic detonation. Our location is
experiencing some of the fastest growth in the country with high-energy
research at Sandia and Los Alamos Laboratories, the first commercial
Spaceport, and an active film and game industry, while also being the home
to 19 Native American Pueblos. We hope that the site will inspire a wide
range of projects including many that extend outside the gallery and
conference center walls."
