ART 4800/ART 5910: Converging Cultures: Art and Devotion
July 9 - 20, 2018 
Cristina Gonzalez

The course is a brief but intensive introduction to the art and culture of Spanish New Mexico, starting with Spanish explorations in the late sixteenth century and ending in the nineteenth century with Mexico’s independence from Spain. A significant portion of the course is given to Devotional art and its function in architectural spaces and pious practices. Every topic is punctuated with pedagogical interventions spotlighting the long history of engagement with the art and communities of the region. The course encourages students to consider how the ongoing process of recovery, restoration, recreation and display continues to (re)shape our vision of New Mexico and its visual culture.
