The cool wa­ters of cul­tural com­mu­nion

Pasatiempo - - In Other Words -

For all the cul­tural con­flict that has en­veloped New Mex­ico over the past few cen­turies, the re­gion has also boasted pe­ri­ods of cross-cul­tural co­op­er­a­tion and artis­tic col­lab­o­ra­tion. The newly pub­lished Con­verg­ing Streams: Art of the His­panic and Na­tive Amer­i­can South­west pays homage to the ex­change be­tween His­pano and In­dian artists over the past 400 years. Pub­lished by the Mu­seum of Span­ish Colo­nial Art (and dis­trib­uted by the Mu­seum of New Mex­ico Press), this nearly 300-page tome, edited by Wil­liam Wroth and Robin Far­well Gavin, in­cludes 11 es­says by artists and his­to­ri­ans and a slew of im­ages.

The Mu­seum of Span­ish Colo­nial Art launches the book with an-all day Con­verg­ing Streams Sym­po­sium from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Satur­day, June 26, at the mu­seum, 750 Camino Lejo (on Mu­seum Hill), 982-2226. It’s free, and the lineup of events and speak­ers is as fol­lows: 9 a.m. Cof­fee
