18 May 2018: Pecos Archaeology at VGPL
Pecos, NM: Pecos National Historical Park Archaeologist Jeremy Moss will offer a presentation on the history of archaeology at the park, future avenues of research and the many cultural connections that bind modern Pueblo groups to Pecos Pueblo on Saturday, June 9, at 1:00 pm at the Vista Grande Public Library. For more than six hundred years, Pecos Pueblo served as a gateway community connecting the Great Plains and the Rio Grande Valley. The allure, mysteries, and myths of Pecos have fascinated archaeologists since Adolph Bandelier first recorded the site in 1881. The cultural connections to modern Pueblo groups makes it an interesting place to explore cultural continuity and to assess the legends and lore that first drew archaeologists to Pecos at the turn of the 20th century. Please note, this program will take place at the Vista Grande Public Library, which is located at 14 Avenida Torreon, Santa Fe, NM 87508. Space is limited, so please arrive early. For more information about the park contact Pecos NHP at (505) 757-7241 or visit our website at www.nps.gov/peco. You will also find our listings on the New Mexico True website (newmexico.org) and Tourism Santa Fe (santafe.org).

Posted 13 Jan 2018: Library Monthly Art Exhibitions a Hit
Library patrons love the monthly art exhibitions at VGPL. When a month goes by without an exhibit, patrons frequently ask, "Where’s our art?" A wide variety of mediums and themes have generated thoughtful discussion and reflection. Artists have also held receptions providing opportunities for friends and family to celebrate each show and new acquaintances a chance to meet the artist. The exhibitions have ranged from 10-18 pieces and been framed in a variety of sizes with 16x20 being the most common. Local artists are invited to apply for an opportunity to display their art at the library. Contact Vickie Willis at [ developmentchair@vglibrary.org ] with questions or to receive an application and guidelines. Interested artists may also click the appropriate document download button on this web page. [ ...more ]
