Starry Magdalena Night Poster on Sale

Starry Magdalena Ridge NightSOCORRO, N.M. April 7, 2010 – It is a little-known fact about the life of Vincent Van Gogh that, when he wasn’t busy painting all those coffee mugs and mouse pads, in his spare time, he painted Tech's Magdalena Ridge Observatory.

At least, that’s the story around New Mexico Tech’s Advancement Office.

Now, a poster of this famous “Van Gogh” can be yours for a mere $5.25 (if you buy it in person) or $8 (to cover shipping and tax).

To purchase one in person, just go to the Advancement Office, on the second floor of Fidel Center, in the southwest corner, during office hours Mondays through Fridays. Posters will also be for sale in the Atrium of Fidel Center from 10 a.m. to noon on April 9.

To order a poster by mail, email LaVern at lrobinson@admin.nmt.edu or call 575-835-5525 or send your check for $8, made out to “New Mexico Tech” to Advancement Office, New Mexico Tech, 801 Leroy Place, Socorro, N.M. 87801.
