Lecture -- "Taos to Socorro, Rock Art Along the Rio Grande"
Thursday, August 28, 7:00 PM to Thursday, August 28, 8:30 PM
Bisected by the Rio Grande, central New Mexico has attracted human groups for millennia. From archaic hunter-gatherers to sedentary farmers and European explorers, they often left their marks in carefully selected locations. Rock art sites abound along this stretch of river valley. This lecture will compare the themes, styles, and surroundings of sites located from Taos to Socorro that are available for public visits.
Carol Chamberland is an artist, a member of the Albuquerque Archeological Society, and current Chair of the Rock Art Council of the Archeological Society of New Mexico. For the past six years she has worked with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to record the petroglyphs and pictographs from remote sites on public lands. She earned a BFA in Painting from Arizona State University, and MA and MFA in Conceptual Design from San Francisco State University.
