Trails, Rails, and Highways: How Trade Transformed the Art of Spanish New Mexico,” by Guest Curator Robin Farwell Gavin. The exhibition 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. It 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.
