Series registration for all 13 sessions of Spanish Colonial Art.

Series description from instructor and art historian Nicholas Dahle:

The arrival of the Spanish in the Americas resulted in the meeting of many cultures and ideas. European and Pre-Colombian art styles combined into what is classified as Spanish colonial art. When Spain ruled New Mexico, santeros crafted vibrant furniture, statues and retablos that exhibit the mixing of both Pueblo and Spanish styles. Witness art produced by contact, conquest and religion. Come and experience Spanish colonial art.

Spanish Colonial Art:  13 sessions, Wednesdays at 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. starting Sept. 16 and ending Dec. 9, 2020.
