Coyota in the Kitchen

Book Reading and Signing: “Coyota in the Kitchen” by Anita Rodriguez

2 pm to 4 pm

Anita Rodriguez is a New Mexican artist and writer.  Her father’s side goes back ten generations in her beloved Taos valley, and her mother is a painter who came to Taos from Austin, Texas.  Anita’s training as an artist began in childhood from her mother and extended to her formal training at the Colorado College. With many artist shows to her credit, Coyota in the Kitchen is Anita’s first full-length book.  Coyota in the Kitchen is a book of stories and recipes, introducing the reader to two eccentric families that would never have eaten together, let alone exchanged recipes, but for the improbable marriage of the author’s parents. Recalling the good and the terrible cooks in her family, Anita also shares the complications of navigating a safe path among contradictory cultural perspectives. She takes us from the mountain villages of New Mexico in the 1940s to sipping mint juleps on the porch of a mansion in the South, and on a prolonged pilgrimage to Mexico and back again to New Mexico. Accompanied by Rodríguez’s vibrant paintings―including scenes of people eating on fiesta nights and plastering an adobe church―Coyota in the Kitchen shows how food reflects the complicated family histories that shape our lives.

¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte!: Opening Reception

2 pm to 4 pm

Join us for the opening reception of ¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte! which celebrates the NHCC Art Museum’s growing permanent collection with a revitalized vibe and a brand new selection of works. This exhibition was a collaborative project as the entire NHCC Visual Arts staff and interns combed through the collection and worked together to decide which pieces should welcome in 2017. This sampling explores the contributions of these artists and how each work can serve as a reminder of the heart that thrives in strong and resilient communities.

The collection contains over 2,500 artworks by Hispanic, Chicana/o, and Latina/o, artists from around the globe most of which have been generously donated to the museum by artists and collectors. It reflects the diversity of Latina/o art and expression in all of its vibrancy, creativity, pointed humor and social consciousness. The National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum exists to support and engage the work of these artists and share their creations and their stories with the broader community.
