DESCRIPTION

As havens of spirit and space, shrines have long claimed hallowed ground in the vast New Mexico landscape. In Altared Spaces: The Shrines of New Mexico, from Sept. 30, 2012, through Feb. 10, 2013, Jack Parsons, Donald Woodman, and Siegfried Halus exhibit their explorations into these special places. The exhibit augments the spirits expressed in the ongoing exhibitions, Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible and Contemplative Landscape in the Herzstein Changing Exhibits Gallery.

The photographers kick off the exhibit on Sunday, September 30, with a 2 pm discussion of their work in the History Museum Auditorium, followed by refreshments in the second-floor Gathering Space, courtesy of the Women's Board of the Museums of New Mexico. The event is free with museum admission; Sundays are free to NM residents.
