This weekend (July 29th and 30th) Santa Fe comes alive with Spanish Market 2011. First celebrated in 1926, this market, showcasing the diverse and rich cultural contributions of New Mexico’s Spanish colonial art tradition, is one of the highlights of the summer market/festival season in Santa Fe. The bulto diorama pictured here, commemorating Santa Fe’s 400th year as a city, was a prize winner at the 2010 traditional Market. If you’re in Santa Fe this weekend make sure to visit the Plaza where the event takes place. While you’re here don’t forget to visit the Contemporary Hispanic Market. The event is Saturday from 8am to 5pm and Sunday from 9:30am to 4pm. If you can’t come this year, perhaps next year or the year after that. What’s your favorite thing about New Mexico’s traditional or contemporary Hispanic art?
