On the occasion of its opening July 21, 2002, the new Museum of Spanish Colonial Art has published a lavishly illustrated catalogue celebrating its collections and inaugural exhibition, Conexiones: Connections in Spanish Colonial Art.
Featuring 236 illustrations, 218 of them in full color, Conexiones: Connections in Spanish Colonial Art is edited by exhibition writer Carmella Padilla and offers a narrative of the inaugural exhibition by Carmella Padilla and Donna L. Pierce, Chief Curator of the Museum. A foreword by Executive Director Stuart A. Ashman, “Of Culture and Community,” details the story of the creation of the Museum. Donna Pierce contributes an essay titled “Visions Realized,” presenting both a personal and a scholarly history of the Spanish Colonial Arts Society and its collections. In an essay titled “A ‘New’ Mexico,” Carmella Padilla surveys the history of the Spanish colonial world and explains how Spain created the world’s first truly global culture.
Conexiones: Connections in Spanish Colonial Art is published by the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art and distributed by the Museum of New Mexico Press. The 176-page hardcover book measures 9 x 11 inches.
