Trails, Rails, and Highways: How Trade Transformed the Art of Spanish New Mexico
Through "Trails, Rails, and Highways: How Trade Transformed the Art of Spanish New Mexico," Curator Emerita Robin Farwell Gavin draws upon the museum’s extensive collection to trace the flow of people, art, culture and history along the historic trail routes that shaped New Mexico. The exhibit takes museum visitors on their own journey, one that traces these encounters and marks the impact on materials, style, and design brought about by the exchange of goods and ideas along the trails through this fascinating exhibition.
