ANNIE LEIBOVITZ: PILGRIMAGE & GEORGIA O’KEEFFE AND THE FARAWAY march 1 – 31

WHAT: Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage charts a new direction for one of this country’s best-known living photographers.

The images are a collection of subjects that have shaped Leibovitz’s view of her cultural inheritance. 

Georgia O’Keeffe and The Faraway: Nature and
Image is the first to demonstrate how the beauty and elegance of O’Keeffe’s paintings were prompted by the intimacy of her ongoing experiences with the Southwest’s natural forms, especially because of the camping trips she made to remote areas.

STITCHING RESISTANCE – march 1 – 31

WHAT: Based on the collection of poet and Wellesley College professor Marjorie Agosín, the exhibition, Stitching Resistance: The History of Chilean Arpilleras is a result of an intense collaboration by poets, artists, scholars, and curators.  Arpilleras are a powerful art form- so much more than a “charming” or quaint applique. Layers of sackcloth or burlap fabric (arpillera) were joined, principally through applique, to create multi-dimensional (in layers and meaning) works of protest and resistance. Nearly forty years ago, the armed forces of Chile overthrew the administration of Salvador Allende. That day, September 11, 1973 created the necessary conditions in which this art form known as arpilleras was born and soon these textiles became the most visual (and visible), poignant, and widespread manifestation of opposition to authoritarianism, violation of human rights, the disappearance of loved ones-all things associated with the military government that ruled Chile until 1990.
WHEN: On view through January 2014, Tuesday – Sunday, 10 am – 5 pm
WHERE: Art Museum at the National Hispanic Cultural Center 1701 4th, St., SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102

YOGA TRIP: JOURNEY WITH THE HEART – march 2

WHAT: Take a yoga TRIP: Tune-in, Rev-up  Inside  Power with Marisol! This morning yoga workshop will help to lead us into a month of creative intentions for the month of March! Discover how to align the body, mind and spirit in a chakra balancing yoga workshop. “Chakra” is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheels of light” and in the subtle body they are centers of energy. These centers have direct correlations with the physical body and can become blocked. Then energy cannot flow and we feel stuck. Balancing our chakras through yoga helps to remove blockages. By removing blockages within our chakras we are able to remove blockages within our lives and open creative pathways. We can then discover our true self and purpose in life. And in that discovery live to our fullest expression and potential.

THE ART OF CARTOGRAPHY: MAPPING AS A CREATIVE PROCESS – march 2

In this workshop, participants will be led through exercises that approach mapping as a creative process. Using mixed media and alternative printmaking techniques, we will create maps that explore personal experience, imagined worlds, and the real and invisible terrains in our daily lives.

YOGA TRIP: JOURNEY WITH THE HEART – march 30

WHAT: Take a yoga TRIP: Tune-in, Rev-up  Inside  Power with Marisol! This morning yoga workshop will helps us to close and celebrate our creative activities from the month of March! Discover how to align the body, mind and spirit in a chakra balancing yoga workshop. “Chakra” is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheels of light” and in the subtle body they are centers of energy. These centers have direct correlations with the physical body and can become blocked. Then energy cannot flow and we feel stuck. Balancing our chakras through yoga helps to remove blockages. By removing blockages within our chakras we are able to remove blockages within our lives and open creative pathways. We can then discover our true self and purpose in life. And in that discovery live to our fullest expression and potential.
