El Palacio, the oldest museum magazine in the country, is the source for knowledge about art, history and culture of the southwestern United States.
In publication since 1913, El Palacio now – as then – reflects the work of New Mexico’s four state museums in Santa Fe, its eight New Mexico historic sites and its office of archaeological studies.
Candace Walsh, Editor-in-Chief of El Palacio Magazine spoke about their latest issue, and the feature of Lloyd Kiva New on the cover.
“Most of us know him as the founder of IAIA, but we share the intimate backstory of how he went from being a struggling World War II veteran to a rags-to-riches celebrity fashion designer in Arizona, in his own words,” says Walsh.
The Gustav Baumann painting, recently donated to the New Mexico History Museum, is connected to the upcoming Santa Fe Fiesta, and Baumann is connected to the parade because while in attendance, he photographed the event and later used those images in historical paintings or depictions of Santa Fe.
Don Juan de Onate’s Jewish ancestry is featured in the latest issue of this magazine as well, and as the article gives tips on ways anyone can research their own historical genealogy at the local library. The library features many free resources not otherwise available online or anywhere else, such as newspaper archives, census data, military records including free access on Ancestry.com
