    A Celebration of Print

    Benjamin Franklin never visited New Mexico, but his memory will grace a week’s worth of events commemorating his contributions to music and the printed word, along with his diplomacy in Spain, a contributing factor to victory in the American Revolution.

Among the highlights: Lectures by Dr. Thomas Chávez, former director of the Palace of the Governors and author of the upcoming Palace Press book, Dr. Franklin and Spain; and Dr. Celia López-Chávez, a Latin American scholar at the University of New Mexico. Also, a performance by Mayling Garcia of Corrales on the glass armonica. All of the events are free with admission. Children 16 and under are free every day; Sundays are free to NM residents.

    Marking Time: A Calendar-Making Workshop

    Keeping track of your daily schedule on a handheld electronic device may be the new normal, but in days of not-so-yore we relied on paper calendars that we marked up, doodled on, and jazzed up with designs of our own, then tacked to the wall for the entire family.

    In that spirit, the education staffs of the New Mexico History Museum and New Mexico Museum of Art invite you to join us in creating personalized calendars for 2013. Pulling inspiration from Illuminating the Word: The Saint John's Bible at the New Mexico History Museum (closing on December 30) and It's About Time: 14,000 Years of Art in New Mexico at the New Mexico Museum of Art, you can illuminate each month with seasonal images, drawings, collages, or glitter and note the days that mean the most to you. Dec. 17 at the History Museum, Jan. 3 at the Museum of Art; workshops at 10:30 am and 2 pm both days.

    Christmas at the Palace is saved! (The floors are finished)

    After concerns that a reflooring project in the entry of the Palace of the Governors would disrupt our holiday events, workmen put their backs into it and saved the day. Besides showing off its new planks, the Palace will again host Christmas at the Palace, this year for the 28th time, as the New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors invites the community to get into the spirit within (and outside of) our walls.

    The complete lineup includes Schola Cantorum and the monks of Christ in the Desert singing songs of the Advent on Dec. 2; Christmas at the Palace, Dec. 7; Las Posadas, Dec. 9; and the Young Native Artists Show and Sale Dec. 15-16.

    Keep Calm and Merry On

    Update: The floors are finished, and Christmas at the Palace will happen as usual. See the updated press release at http://media.museumofnewmexico.org/press_releases.php?action=detail&releaseID=239

    Christmas at the Palace and Las Posadas, two of the most beloved holiday events in Santa Fe, are back again, but with a twist. A reflooring project in the entryway of the Palace of the Governors has forced us to lock its front doors, but we can’t keep Santa from greeting his fans at Christmas at the Palace on Friday, Dec. 7. Well-placed sources tell us that the world’s oldest elf plans to enter the Palace Courtyard through the Blue Gate on Washington Avenue, just south of the Lincoln Avenue entrance, and we advise all interested children to gather there at 5:30 pm with their families. Parts of the Palace, a National Historic Landmark, will be open. As a special treat, we’ll also open the first-floor lobby of the New Mexico History Museum for musical performances and a place to ward off the winter chill. Besides visiting with Santa in the Palace Courtyard, visitors can also enjoy Spanish carols, hot cider, biscochitos, and a piñata. The event, from 5:30—8 pm, is free. Donations of nonperishable foods are welcome. Las Posadas kicks off two nights later, at 5:30 pm on Sunday, Dec. 9.

    Tall Tales of the Wild West: The Stories of Karl May

    Mention “Winnetou” or “Old Shatterhand” almost anywhere in Europe, and you’ll be met with smiles. But try it in the United States, and you’re more likely to earn a blank stare. Created by German author Karl May, Winnetou and Old Shatterhand are two of the most popular fictional characters of the 19th and 20th century. In a series of novels, they served as trail guides to the mystique of the American West and even today are celebrated in European festivals and theme parks.

    May’s books have outsold those of Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey combined and were beloved by the likes of Albert Einstein, Herman Hesse, Fritz Lang, and Franz Kafka. All of that makes the author (who died in 1912) something of an authority on cowboys, Indians, Rocky Mountains, saloon girls, soldiers, and banks ripe for robbing.

    But there’s a hitch: May never saw the West. Nevertheless, his faith in the glory of the West and his ability to nurture an entire continent’s love for it has drawn countless people across the Atlantic to visit and to stay. From Nov. 18, 2012, to Feb. 9, 2014, the New Mexico History Museum celebrates May’s life, legacy and lasting impact in Tall Tales of the Wild West: The Stories of Karl May.

    State Historian to Deliver the Santa Fe Fiesta Lecture

    Diego de Vargas’s 1693 reconquest of Santa Fe did not create the peaceful Spanish province he needed for successful governance. To get it, he employed a series of strategies, including compadrazgo (godparenthood) of tribal children, divide-and-conquer, and a sweet helping of chocolate diplomacy.

    State Historian Rick Hendricks will detail what Vargas did and how it worked in ”I Was Godfather to Them: Diego de Vargas and the Reconquest of New Mexico,” the annual Santa Fe Fiesta Lecture at the New Mexico History Museum at 6 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 5. The lecture is sponsored by the Palace Guard, and admission is free to its members; $5 others, at the door. Seating is limited.

    Pinhole Photography Collection Joins the New Mexico History Museum

    Mysterious, artistic, and as low-tech as an oatmeal box, pinhole photography has captivated everyone from schoolchildren to professional photographers for more than a century. The Pinhole Resource Archives, the world’s largest collection of images, books and cameras, just joined New Mexico’s largest archive of photography, the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives at the New Mexico History Museum.

    The collection was a donation from Pinhole Resource Inc., which is based in New Mexico and led by Eric Renner and Nancy Spencer. Already in the works is a 2014 exhibition, Poetics and Light, celebrating works from the collection.

    The Segesser Hide Paintings: Examine an 18th-century artifact with 21st-century tools

    In the early 1700s, Spain’s northern colony sat at the edge of a frontier that could be fraught with danger. Inside the Palace of the Governors at the New Mexico History Museum, visitors can see examples of what happened when explorers set out on that frontier. The Segesser Hide Paintings depict two such adventures on a grand scale—a total of roughly 137 square feet of what is likely bison leather painted with natural pigments.

    “The Segesser hides are a rare and important artifact of our collection, not only because of what they show but because of what they are,” said Dr. Frances Levine, director of the New Mexico History Museum. “The expeditions depicted on the Segesser hides likely began at the front door of the Palace of the Governors, so we like to think that the hides truly came home to us.”

    The Saint Johnís Bible and Contemplative Landscape

    Thirteen years of painstaking work by some of the finest calligraphers, artists and theologians in the world comes to a close this year with the completion of The Saint John’s Bible – a contemporary handwritten and illuminated Bible created by a team of artists and calligraphers at a Scriptorium in Wales. Before its pages are bound into volumes and placed on permanent exhibition by the Benedictine monks at Saint John’s Abbey and University in Collegeville, Minn., 44 pages from two of the Bible’s seven volumes – Wisdom Books and Prophets – will be exhibited at the New Mexico History Museum.

    Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible (Oct. 23 through Dec. 30, 2012) will share its space and spirit with Contemplative Landscape (Oct. 23 through Dec. 30, 2012), a photographic exploration of how people have responded to and interacted with New Mexico’s landscape through art, architecture and sacred rituals. The exhibition prominently features the work of Tony O’Brien, whose 1994-95 sojourn at a New Mexico monastery forms the heart of his new book, Light in the Desert: Photographs from the Monastery of Christ in the Desert  (Museum of New Mexico Press), debuting with the exhibition.

    New exhibit explores changing views of Native peoples through photography

    Since the Civil War, photographers have tried to capture the lives of Native American peoples, resulting in some of the most beautiful and elegant portraits in the collections of the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives.

    Good News: St. Johnís Bible Earns an Extended Engagement

    The popularity of Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible, combined with the delighted approval of the exhibition’s design from the monks of Saint John’s University, has led to an extension of the show’s run.

    “The installation of the folios in the New Mexico History Museum presents The Saint John’s Bible in one of the most beautiful and faith-filled exhibitions of this Bible done to date,” said Tim Ternes, director of The Saint John’s Bible. “The contemplative environment artfully shares the story, work and process of this monumental project in a setting that compels the guest to slow down, relax and reflect. Saint John’s is very pleased to be able to extend this exhibition in the Santa Fe area, a place where art, faith and culture have been harmoniously blended for centuries.”

    Encore: Schola Cantorum and the Monks of Christ in the Desert Monastery

    Last December, a performance by Santa Fe’s Schola Cantorum and the monks of Christ in the Desert Monastery drew an overflow crowd to the New Mexico History Museum. So many people were turned away that the singers graciously offered an impromptu, after-show performance in the museum lobby. Impressed by the turnout, as well as the unexpectedly fine acoustics of the lobby, the singers eagerly offered to return for an encore performance.

    At 2 pm on Sunday, March 11, come to the museum lobby for a soulful afternoon featuring Holy Week chants of 10th-century Europe, polyphony of the 16th-century Renaissance and, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, chants from Ireland’s Dublin Troper, published in 1360. The event is free with admission; Sundays free to NM residents.

    History Museum celebrates the Centennial with 47 Stars exhibit

    The United States Flag Act of 1818 set forth a rule that no new stars could be added to Old Glory until the Fourth of July immediately following a state’s admission to the union. Thanks to that once-a-year-and-only-once-a-year mandate, New Mexicans hoping to share their pride at becoming the 47th state were essentially forced into committing their first illegal acts as U.S. citizens.

    From January 6 through November 25, 2012, the New Mexico History Museum commemorates that dip into the dark side with 47 Stars, an exhibit of the officially unofficial 47-star flag. 47 Stars joins a collection of long-term exhibits, a year of Centennial topics in the ongoing Brainpower & Brownbags Lecture Series, and a tongue-in-cheek front-window installation that lets you step into a historic photo, all to help celebrate the state’s Centennial.
