Tradition, culture, soul, sprit, arte. These words have long come to symbolize the ambience of Nuevo México and the abundance of traditions that abound in our region.
Nuevo México: El Corazón de la Cultura, or New Mexico: The Heart of Culture, at the Museum of International Folk Art, includes all genres from metalsmithing, weaving, and new media to straw appliqué, tin work, recycled art and the art of the santero. Items traded between New Mexico and Mexico and artifacts that would have come on the Manila galleons were also included.
El Corazón de la Cultura opened Wednesday, December 24, 2008 and ran through September 27, 2009.
