The love of arts in Roswell has its roots in a fundamental change when oil and gas were discovered in the Permian basin, turning ranchers and farmers in the 1930s into millionaires. These millionaires were able to afford a different lifestyle for their children and grandchildren, who were sent to the most elite universities in the nation. Though not everyone became an artist they did bring home with them a love for the arts.
