There is an amazing collection of museums just outside of Santa Fe on"Museum Hill" including the Museum of Spanish Colonial Arts. My family goes back 5 generations in Tincraft and I study retablo painting. There are only a handful of people who still practice these traditional styles and techniques and the museum houses a gorgeous collection of these crafts. The museum is currently holding a breathtaking exhibit of the 30 gowns of La Conquistadora. The statue actually has over 200 gowns, but they have released 30 for public viewing. They always have interesting exhibits and workshops at that museum that really reflect the rich texture of the landscape of New Mexico.
