2021 Spring Virtual Concert Series
Museum of International Folk Art and New Mexico Museum of Art
Masterworks & Masterpieces takes you to two of Santa Fe’s famous historical sites! The concert features a collection of classical, modern, and folk music performed by Santa Fe Symphony musicians—surrounded by art—at MOIFA and NMMA. Experience brilliant works by composers Beethoven, Bartók, Steinmetz, Lutoslawski, Daniel Davis, and more, all beautifully filmed by Hutton Broadcasting. This concert premiered Sunday, April 18 at 4 pm and is available to view through May 18.
The Museum of International Folk Art, founded in 1953, is one of the few museums in the United States dedicated to folk art from around the world. Its permanent exhibits include an awe-inspiring display of 10,000 pieces of folk art, toys, miniatures, textiles, and more from the collection of Alexander and Susan Girard. The museum also showcases the collection of founder Florence Dibell Bartlett, who donated more than 2,500 textiles, costumes, ceramics, wood carvings, paintings, and jewelry.
The first building in the state dedicated to art, the New Mexico Museum of Art showcases the state’s rich culture. The style of the building, called Pueblo Revival, uses modern construction materials made to look like the historic adobe churches found throughout the state’s pueblos. Throughout its century-long history, the museum has grown and redefined itself to adapt to changes both in art and in museum practices.
