The 1960s: Great Dreams or Grim Nightmares? A RENESAN Symposium
New Mexico History Museum
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
The way you answer that question may depend on your age, your gender, your geographic location, your income, and your race. The Bay Area, Mississippi, Taos, Greenwich Village, and Chicago tell different stories, with some common threads running through them. For some, it was a time of great promise and renewed social activism; for others, these same activities posed a challenge to the established order and a threat to national security.
RENESAN, Santa Fe’s Institute for Lifelong Learning, is collaborating with the New Mexico History Museum and the Palace of the Governors to expand the reach of its exhibit “Voices of Counter Culture in the Southwest” to the nation as a whole, examining some of the major issues raised by the times and exploring their impact on American culture today.
Over the course of four days, November 13 to 16, scholars, writers, photographers, and activists, both local and national, will discuss the key themes that take these conversations far beyond the cliché of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.

We are all getting ready for Thanksgiving. Corn was a staple for Native Americans and early settlers alike so toys made from cornhusks were common. Join us this Sunday to make your own cornhusk doll for this season.
