About Arthur T. Hannett:
After serving as a member of the State Highway Commission from 1923 to 1924, Arthur T. Hannett was elected as the seventh Governor of New Mexico, serving in that office from 1925 to 1927. Subsequently, he lost his bid to a second term as Governor and blamed the politicians of Santa Fe for not supporting him in reclaiming his seat. Retaliating against those politicians, Hannett decided to change the path that U.S. Route 66 took and re-route it from Santa Rosa directly to Albuquerque. This new alignment would bypass the city of Santa Fe, its businesses and most importantly its politicians. When the new road was completed it was widely lauded as providing shorter and safer travel between Chicago and points west. These steps had great impact on New Mexico, and opened up the West to better commerce and travel from the industrial powerhouse cities to the east. It is ironic that the re-routing of U.S. Route 66 did not hurt Santa Fe, but that Santa Fe survived and indeed thrived.
About the Artist (Metal Sculpture, "La Bajada") ):
Although Gino Miles received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Northern Colorado, he spent ten of his college years studying abroad outside Florence, Italy, also attending classes at the università per stranieri di Perugia and the accademia delle belle arti in Florence. The abundant Italian sculpture, architecture, paintings, food, and culture heavily influenced his life and his art--both during this time and ever since. In 1983, Miles returned to the United States with his wife, settling in Santa Fe. Gino revels in the beautiful, wide open and unique terrain of New Mexico, where he continues sculpting, fabricating, and casting works inspired by what he sees every day. Miles’ work embodies his passion and energy inspired from classical figures as well as objects found in nature, transforming them into contemporary statements. He produces work that is conceived in a timeless attention to form and negative space.
Gino Miles’ sculpture is an abstract representation of the earliest La Bajada Road incorporating the up and down hairpin turns of this famous stretch of old dirt road, which was the original Route 66 connecting Santa Fe and Albuquerque. The sculpture is also reminiscent of the everyday journey we all must make, whether it is cross country trip or just a drive around the corner to buy groceries. This work synthesizes the past and the present of New Mexico, connecting all of its people to the culture that built this great state.

Dr. Timothy F. Fleming Building
Address: 2500 Cerrillos Road
Square Footage: 16,284
Originally the building served as the Army Reserve Building and referred to as T-186, until 1997 when the property was purchased as part of the planning process to create the West Complex. In 2002, the building was named for Dr. Timothy F. Fleming. Due to a rare malignancy that was first diagnosed when he was 22, Dr. Fleming passed away in 1999. Graduating with his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1978, Dr. Fleming joined the US Public Health Service and was assigned to an isolated clinic serving the Hualapai and Havasuapi Indian Nations in Arizona. Over the next ten years he also cared for and befriended people from various pueblos and tribes in New Mexico and Oregon. From his experiences with these spiritual people, Dr. Fleming began to approach life's challenges with a greater sense of insight and commitment.
"Each step of the way it is evident that I gained far more from Indian people than I could ever have repaid them in healthcare services." -- Dr. Fleming

After attending public school in Moriarity and a brief stint at New Mexico Highlands University in the late 1950's, Anaya transferred to Washington D.C., where he graduated from Georgetown University in 1963 with a B.A. in Economics/Political Science. He received his J.D. from Washington College of Law, American University, Washington D.C. in 1967.
Anaya demonstrated an early interest in and attraction to national politics. He worked as a clerical assistant to U.S. Senator Dennis Chavez in 1959, held federal jobs while in school in Washington D.C., and was Legislative Counsel to U.S. Senator Joseph M. Montoya from 1966-69. As Attorney General, 1975-1978, Anaya established his reputation for being fearless and tenacious. He concentrated his efforts on issues like consumer education, consumer protection, and legislative campaign reform. As Governor (1983-1986), his agenda was based on the premise that government should provide services that individuals cannot provide for themselves. Anaya pursued his program as Governor energetically, regardless of the consequences. He took a strong controversial stand opposing the death penalty; declared New Mexico a sanctuary for political refugees as a response to the turmoil in Central America in the mid-1980's; and was vehemently opposed.
