And Now, For Something Completely Different

Visitors to The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn are typically in Santa Fe to view the Southwestern Art scene for which we are known.  Here is an opportunity for something completely different - a fascinating lecture on "The Art of the Aloha Shirt" at the Museum of International Folk Art.  This museum is known for its eclectic exhibits, from an exhibit on beds from around the world to the attire of African chiefs.  Perhaps that is why it is my favorite museum in town.

This lecture,  given by Dr. Linda Boynton Arthur, is presented in conjunction with the current exhibition, Material World: Textiles & Dress From the Collection.  Come and learn the history and meaning of the beloved Aloha Shirt, this Sunday, February 20, at 2pm.  The lecture is free with museum admission.  Heads up New Mexicans - entrance is free on Sundays with valid I.D.
