Only one more day until Storytellers: Teaching Heritage through Song and Story opens!  Our curator, Carmela Quinto, and I have been promoting this exhibit all week.  On Tuesday, we were the featured guests on "El Show," a bilingual radio program on KNCE, the Taos News wrote an article about the exhibit in this week's Tempo, we sent out a newsletter, and I was just on KTAO this morning with Paddy Mac.  The exhibit focuses on the variety of storytelling traditions unique to northern New Mexico and features ceramic figurines, woven and embroidered textiles, and paintings from both Native American and Hispanic artists.  This Saturday at 1 p.m., we are hosting a free bilingual children's story time at the museum with readings from Teresa Dovalpage, Joan Livingston, and Ed Cardenas.  All of the books included in the story time will be offered for sale in the museum store if you want to follow along during the event or continue learning about storytelling traditions at home.  I encourage you to bring the whole family to the museum this weekend and make learning a habit!
