World War I and New Mexico A special noon lecture and remembrance

12 to 1 PM / New Mexico History Museum

After Pancho Villa’s March 9, 1916, attack on Columbus, NM, Gen. John J. Pershing launched a Punitive Expedition with one goal: Get Villa. Given his failure to do so, Pershing’s effort could easily be chalked up as a military failure. But its long-term impact was significant. The surge into Mexico provided valuable training for Pershing and for New Mexico troops who would all too soon enter World War I.

As centenary commemorations for “The Great War” begin across the globe, the History Museum’s interim director, Jon Hunner, will speak on “World War I and New Mexico” at noon on Wednesday, July 30. This free lecture will be in the Meem Community Room; enter through the museum’s Washington Avenue doors.

Print to Painting in New Spain A Free First Friday Gallery Talk

6 to 6:30 PM / New Mexico History Museum

How did artists in Spain's farflung colonies draw inspiration for the lavishly detailed artwork on display in Painting the Divine: Images of Mary in the New World? Secular and sacred engravings were sent to New World colonies like Santa Fe, and inventories made in the viceroyalties confirm that these European prints were displayed in churches and private homes. Local artists based their own work on them, helping to create a unique regional aesthetic. Meet curator Josef Díaz in the Painting the Divine gallery, where he will show how the art evolved. 

Free museum admission to everyone from 5 to 8 pm.
