My New Mexican Roots / 2nd Saturday at Casa San Ysidro

My New Mexican Roots / 2nd Saturday at Casa San Ysidro

Sep 10, 2016
1 - 4 PM

Have you thought of recycling sardine lids as hair curlers? Have you worried that hairs left in the sink might turn into snakes?

New Mexican Village life is brought to life in Dr. Nasario Garcia’s memoir Hoe, Heaven, and Hell: My Boyhood in Rural New Mexico, recently published by University of New Mexico Press. The memoir received a Fabiola Cabeza de Baca Award for “outstanding publication regarding domestic life in New Mexico” and two New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. Grab your saguaripa (straw hat) and join us in a trip to the Río Puerco. Dr. Garcia’s storytelling skills will bring depth to our understanding of the remarkable collection of New Mexican domestic items housed at the museum.

Dr. Garcia will present stories and images of old-timers, landscape, and sites related to his life in the Rio Puerco Valley, complemented by the rich collection of New Mexican vernacular art and domestic objects housed at Casa San Ysidro in Corrales.

Admission is free between 1 and 4 p.m. Visitors are invited to this exciting public talk and to view the Minge collection of early New Mexican furnishings and tools.

For more information, call 505-243-7255.
