Southwestern Spain with Dr. Donna Pierce April 25 – May 8, 2017
Join us on this special tour of Southwestern Spain with Dr. Donna Pierce, former Jan and Frederick Mayer Curator of Spanish Colonial Art and Chair of the New World Department at the Denver Art Museum. She also has served as curator at the Museum of International Folk Art and the New Mexico History Museum Palace of the Governors. She has authored and edited numerous publications on the art of the colonial Americas, including Painting a New World: Mexican Art and Life, 1521-1821, Spanish New Mexico: the Spanish Colonial Arts Society Collection, and Transforming Images: New Mexican Santos In-Between Worlds.
Discover remote areas of southwestern Andalusia; explore the famous “white villages” perched high in the dramatic mountainous landscape of rural Spain; visit medieval castles, Renaissance palaces, and Roman ruins; stay in the award-winning new parador at the tip of the narrow peninsula separating the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Cádiz where merchants watched for their ships returning from the New World laden with exotic trade goods from Asia and the Americas. See forts built to protect Spanish towns from English pirates; visit Mudéjar (Christian/Muslim) palaces, Arab baths, and a Jewish synagogue in the magical towns of Jerez de la Frontera, Seville, and Córdoba; see an equestrian show performed by the famous Arabian horses of Andalusia, tour a sherry winery and enjoy lectures on the history, art and culture of the region.
SAVE THE DATE!! Mexico City: 3,000 Years of Mexican Art and Culture April 1 - 10, 2017
Mexico is a wonderful and culturally rich country, from its amazing archaeological treasures to its fascinating colonial towns. Here you step back into another time where people are not rushed, where friendliness prevails, where cultural differences enrich your travels. Travelers to Mexico City find themselves in a melting pot of history and culture where the ancient past and contemporary present blend to create a unique synergy with a foot in both worlds. This legendary capital, Mexico City, is a world-class destination that rivals the great cities of the world with the warmth of its hospitality, quality of its services and the diversity of its attractions.
