Art and Heritage

When: Mon., Feb. 9, 6:30 p.m. 2015

It's no secret that Colorado used to be part of New Spain. We exist on a cultural thread that goes from southern Canada to Colombia to old Spain. Want proof? Just ask noted santero Charles Carillo tonight at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver, tinyurl.com/qd36hyk). He and DMNS anthropology curator Chip Colwell are giving a tour and in-depth conversation on the museum's Spanish traditional art collection. The event is at 6:30 and costs $20 for members, $25 for non-members. For bonus points, ask about how La Christa Negra ties Esquipulas, Guatemala, to Chimayó, New Mexico. — Griffin Swartzell

Price: $20-$25
