Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM


National Hispanic Cultural Center

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM examines race and identity in New Mexico and is a space for artistic expression that grapples with the complexities of who we are, how we are understood, and how that impacts the way we live (or don’t) in a variety of places.  The exhibition features approximately 26 newly created artworks by artists with different experiences in New Mexico alongside works from the National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum’s permanent collection. All of the artworks delve into  race and place through an intersectional lens alongside gender, sexuality, class, nationality, citizenship status, etc. from local, national, and international perspectives.

Zia Singers Present 25th Anniversary Concert and Celebration, May 27

Past choir directors and alumni will join women’s chorus for a special performance


Sun., May 27, 4 PM, Santa Fe Women’s Club, 1616 Old Pecos Trail


$40, general admission. Tickets and information at www.TheZiaSingers.com

Santa Fe, NM – From a handful of women in a living room to 40 singers who perform in concert halls, the Zia Singers women’s chorus has come a long way in 25 years.  Under the direction of Aaron Howe and accompanied by Lydia Madrick, the Zia Singers present a 25th anniversary concert and celebration, Sun., May 27, at 4 PM, at the Santa Fe Women’s Club, and has invited former directors and Zia alumni to share the stage for this special performance. Mayor Alan Webber will read a proclamation honoring the quarter century the Zias have brought a diverse mix of classical, contemporary, Broadway, traditional and pop music to Santa Fe. The audience will be treated to catered appetizers and cake. Tickets are $40; www.TheZiaSingers.com to reserve.

Zia Singers      Aaron Howe

The Zia Singers began in 1992 as a group of voice students of singer and voice teacher Marilyn Barnes, growing from a few singers in her living room to a larger performing chorus over the next eleven years. Dr. Kenneth Knight became director in 2003, until Dr. Karen Marrolli took the baton 2011- 2015. Interim director Cora Harms directed the Zia’s until 2016, when current director Aaron Howe, who also directs New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus and Musical Theater Southwest musicals, took the podium. From its small beginnings to the large performing ensemble it is today, the Zia’s mission remains the same: to sing for the simple joy of singing, and to bring a variety of music to the public. The Zias visit retirement homes and charitable fundraisers, and have collaborated with the Men’s Camerata, Canticum Novum, Boston’s Broad Cove Chorale, the New Mexico Gay Men’s Chorus, and the Río Rancho Youth Chorus.

Pecos NHP to Celebrate National Trails Day with Special Hiking Opportunity at Forked Lighting Ranch

Wooden beams from the ramada frame view of mountains surrounding Glorieta pass.

Pecos, NM: What better way to celebrate National Trails Day 2018 than to hike through one of the seldom-seen areas of Pecos National Historical Park!  The three mile South Pasture Loop trail on the grounds of the historic Forked Lightning Ranch will be open to hikers from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 2nd. This moderately difficult trail follows old ranch roads through a shady cottonwood grove, along the bluffs of the Pecos River, and through the open pasture lands of the Forked Lightning Ranch.

Hikers must first check in at the Visitor Center to receive driving directions to the trailhead and a hiking map.  The trailhead is open from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; visitors must complete their hike no later than 5:00 p.m.  Dogs on leash are permitted.  Please note that this trail is exposed to the elements; exercise appropriate caution with regard to weather.

Legislation in the 1990s added the Forked Lightning Ranch property to the park, which expanded park lands from 342 acres to more than 6700 acres.  This vast scenic expanse of land offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore the beauty of the Upper Pecos River watershed.  Superintendent Karl Cordova noted that “This hike is a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Trail System and offers the public a chance to enjoy the beauty of the historic Forked Lightning Ranch.”

Pecos NHP Offers Free Lecture

Archaeology of Pecos: Myth, Mystery, and Cultural Continuity

Pecos, NM: Pecos National Historical Park Archaeologist Jeremy Moss will offer a presentation on the history of archaeology at the park, future avenues of research and the many cultural connections that bind modern Pueblo groups to Pecos Pueblo on Saturday, June 9th at 1:00 p.m. at the Vista Grande Public Library, Eldorado, Santa Fe County, NM.

For more than six hundred years, Pecos Pueblo served as a gateway community connecting the Great Plains and the Río Grande Valley. The allure, mysteries, and myths of Pecos have fascinated archaeologists since Adolph Bandelier first recorded the site in 1881. The cultural connections to modern Pueblo groups makes it an interesting place to explore cultural continuity and to assess the legends and lore that first drew archaeologists to Pecos at the turn of the 20th century.

Please note, this program will take place at the Vista Grande Public Library, which is located at 14 Avenida Torreón, Eldorado, Santa Fe County, NM 87508.  Space is limited, so please arrive early.

For more information about the park contact Pecos NHP at (505) 757-7241 or visit our website at www.nps.gov/peco.
