Art & History of Colonial New Mexico Lecture Series: Santos and Churches of Northern New Mexico
January 25th 12 -1pm
Presented by Spanish Market Artist and Author
Marie Romero Cash
Marie Romero Cash is a santera whose works are in many northern New Mexico churches and in the Vatican, the Smithsonian, and other major collections including that of the Spanish Colonial Arts Society. She has won many major awards, including the Master’s Award for Lifetime Achievement given by the Society, and has written books on santos, churches, and home altars.
This slide lecture will familiarize audiences with santos—what they are, who makes them and why. It will also map out colonial churches from the oldest U.S. Church, San Miguel Mission in Santa Fe, moving north to the much-photographed church at Ranchos de Taos.
