About From VistCorrales.com:
The study of colonial New Mexican art often forgets one important element—tinwork. Fortunately, there are individuals who have dedicated their lives to the study of this delicate art form. Maurice Dixon, art historian of Santa Fe and author of the forthcoming book, The Artistic Odyssey of Higinio V. Gonzales: A Tinsmith and Poet in Territorial New Mexico, is one of these individuals. He will take visitors on an informal, walking talk that highlights Casa’s outstanding tinwork collection on November 14, 2015. Mr. Dixon’s presentation will begin at 1:30 p.m. Come experience Casa’s collection of 19th century tinwork from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and have a chance to create your own art.
Visitors may embark on self-paced tours at Casa San Ysidro both prior to and following the presentation between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 pm., with free admission during this afternoon. Casa San Ysidro is located at 973 Old Church Road in the Village of Corrales.
