Tohono Chul Park: Rio Grande Pueblos and Georgia O’Keeffe Country

Saturday, November 6 at 8 pm (PT)

Consider the New Mexico pueblos of Santo Domingo, Cochiti, Tesuque, San Ildefonso, Chimayo, and Taos. Behind the picture-postcard, sun-washed adobes and Spanish missions are people who impart something of themselves and their long history to their art — from expressively diverse pottery forms and earth-toned weavings to bold silver and turquoise jewelry. Join author, cultural historian and second-generation Native American arts dealer Mark Bahti for an insightful exploration of the Pueblos of the Rio Grande with the added intrigue of Georgia O’Keeffe country, her home and the museum dedicated to her art.

Travel from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and Taos, stopping at a thoughtful selection of pueblos to meet residents who will share their lives and demonstrate their arts. We will tour galleries and museums, and visit artists in their home studios. There will be opportunities to sample renowned New Mexico restaurants, shop for exquisite arts and crafts and just sit quietly on the Plaza in Santa Fe and be a part of the “scene.”
