A Palace in Need of Repair: 1660-1720 The Santa Fe Fiesta Lecture

6 to 7:30 PM / New Mexico History Museum

The Palace of the Governors, begun in 1609, remains the nation’s oldest continuously occupied government building. But before and especially after the 1680 Pueblo Revolt and 1693 Reconquest, one of the most common complaints found in early descriptions of it came down to four important words: “In need of repair.” Over and over, the phrase crops up in the historical record. For the museum’s annual Santa Fe Fiesta Lecture, noted archaeologist Cordelia “Dedie” Thomas Snow pulls together the various citations of that phrase to imagine how the Palace looked and what life in Santa Fe was like.

“A Palace in Need of Repair: 1660-1720” is at 6 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 3, in the History Museum auditorium. Admission is $5 at the door; free to members of the Palace Guard, the museum’s friends’ group. (To join the Palace Guard, call the Museum of New Mexico Foundation at 982-6366, ext. 100.)

Mirror of Time: Cased Portraits from the Dawn of Photography A Free First Friday Gallery Talk

6 to 7 PM / New Mexico History Museum

From 1839 into the 1860s, people held their loved ones’ images as daguerreotypes or ambrotypes tucked into hinged cases. The cases protected the images from exposure to the ravages of air—but that also bars them from public display. Toxic to produce, they are increasingly difficult to find, but the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives owns several hundred. Join Photo Archivist Daniel Kosharek for "Mirror of Time: Cased Portraits from the Dawn of Photography," as he pulls a few from storage for this special one-time viewing in the museum lobby.

Free museum admission to everyone from 5 to 8 pm.
