Masters Award recipient Jimmy Trujillo will be leading an artist enrichment workshop focused on traditional encrusted straw art. Jimmy has stayed true to using the New Mexico Spanish Colonial period techniques, methods and materials on the encrusted straw/cornhusk art he creates.

“This is what I share with you today - a tradition that I am striving to keep alive. I have embarked on a journey with much pride and admiration. I also pray that this is reflected in each original work of art that I created.”
- Jimmy Trujillo, Masters Award Recipient and Spanish Market artist

Dr. Calvo-Quirós lecture focuses on the mobility of Saints across the Mexican/U.S. and the evolution of their identities.

His current research explores the connections between U.S. - Mexico immigration policies, the imaginary and the phantasmagoric, as well as the process of policing and regulating the spirituality of immigrant communities.

Paul Pletka: Converging Faiths in the New World brings together paintings that focus on Christian saints and the indigenous depictions of gods of North and South America. It includes more than a dozen of his highly detailed paintings—some of which stretch wider than 10 feet—retablos, bultos, and Mexican masks from his collection, and artifacts from the museum’s collection, including a historic death cart. The exhibit focuses exclusively on his art about Mexico and the Southwest. Borrowed from private collectors for this occasion, the works in the exhibit demonstrate how people of different cultures found their way to accepting one another while holding fast to their roots.
