Wednesday Social Events

Please join us Wednesday evening at the Museum of International Folk Art, located on Museum Hill. A Santa Fe treasure, the Museum was founded by Florence Dibell Bartlett, a Chicago heiress who donated her collection and properties to the State of New Mexico. Ms. Bartlett believed that Folk Art, as a visual language, can unite people from all over the world. The Museum’s collection now represents over 100 countries and some of the finest global cultural traditions.

The Girard gallery, the main exhibit at the Museum of International Folk Art, will be open to Symposium attendees from 5pm to 8pm on Wednesday evening. Docent tours will be conducted from 5pm to 6pm, or you may explore the gallery on your own. This will be followed by drinks and a contemporary New Mexican dinner catered by the Museum Hill Cafe. Admission to this event is included in your Symposium registration. Cost for companions who wish to participate is $75. Photography is permitted throughout the Museum unless restricted for a specific exhibit.

  • A special workshop related to the museum exhibits will be offered to Symposium attendees and companions. This will begin with a docent tour of the amulet and talisman exhibit from 2pm to 3pm, followed by a hands-on session from 3pm-5pm. The cost for this is $15. Space is limited.

  • All of the Museum galleries are open to Symposium attendees and companions during the hours of 2pm to 5pm on Wednesday. The general public admission fee will be waived during these hours upon presentation of your Symposium name badge. As "Museum Members" for the day, you are also entitled to a 10% discount at the Museum Shop.

Transportation from La Fonda to the Museum will be provided, starting around 1:30pm and returning to the hotel between 8pm and 9pm. This will provide you with an opportunity to visit some of the other locations of interest adjacent to the Museum. Costs for these are not included in the Symposium registration, but are nominal:

For those who prefer an outdoor activity, there are several options. Please be aware that Santa Fe is high desert, with an altitude of 7200 ft (2200 m). Be sure to drink and carry plenty of water, wear appropriate clothing, and be generous with your sunscreen.

  • Quality bicycles are available for rent from Mello Velo, located a few blocks from La Fonda. Arrangements must be made directly with the shop. Note: La Fonda can provide bicycle storage for attendees who want to make an extended rental arrangement with Mello Velo during the Symposium. Two bicycle trails to consider are Dale Ball Trail and La Tierra Trail, both within three miles of La Fonda. See also Santa Fe Trails

  • There are many hiking trails in the Santa Fe area, but again look at the Dale Ball and La Tierra Trails.

However you choose to spend your time on Wednesday afternoon, be sure to be back for the social by 5pm, and bring your camera for one of the best sunset views in Santa Fe.
