ASDM Guest Lecture at the Arizona History Museum
March 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm| $3
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 email@example.com
