Wednesday, 22 March 2017 18:35

The Taos Arts Council, the Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum, and the John A. Rowland House are proud to present Take A Detour From Route 66: Taos To L.A.

This event is curated by Irvine poet, Karen S. Córdova; and Taos poet and publisher, Andrea L. Watson, who offer profound gratitude and appreciation for the Homestead Museum and its staff, especially Alexandra Rasic, Director of Public Programs; Paul Spitzzeri, Museum Director; and Robert Barron, Facilities Coordinator; as well as for Elizabeth Riley.

Award-winning poets from across the United States and historical commentators were invited to take a detour in either space or time and create original work for this event, inspired by Route 66 and its ancestral trails. Select musicians and artists were invited to share their talents with images and musical echoes of the Mother Road and states through which it snakes.

A culinary historian was invited to offer samplings of Route 66- era diner food.

Thanks to Patrick Utter and members of the Model ‘A’ Restores Club for sharing their vehicles with us on Saturday.
