ASDM Guest Lecture at the Arizona History Museum

March 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| $3

Spain
Come meet our colleagues from the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and learn about our Southwestern connection to Spain.

In the Southwest we use the adjective “Spanish” frequently and loosely. Indeed, many elements of our culture originate in Spain. However, the 16th -18th century Christian Spain that colonized the Americas was the sum total of its previous occupants – Arabs, Jews, Visigoths and Romans. Join us in an exploration of the links between Old and New World farming, religion, ceramics, gastronomy and architecture.  Speakers are Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum staff Jesus Garcia and Sonya Norman. Jesus has worked on the Kino Heritage Fruit Trees project for a decade, and Sonya’s grandfather comes from a rural Spanish farming community in Valencia, Spain. They will be leading a trip to Spain this coming September. Trip details can be seen at http://www.desertmuseum.org/adultclasses.

Program is included with admission to the museum, which is discounted from 4-8 p.m. Free validated parking available in the Main Gate garage, enter on 2nd Street. For more information about this event, call (520) 628-5774 or email ahstucson@azhs.gov
