Events celebrating the opening of
The Red That Colored The World
From Antiquity to today, as symbol and hue, red has risen to the pinnacle of the color spectrum. Throughout art history, a broad red brushstroke has colored the finest art and expressions of daily life. Yet, while most people know red, few know of its most prolific and enduring source: American Cochineal, a tiny scaled insect that produces carminic acid. Fewer still know the story behind its explosive global spread after its first encounter by Spain in 16th century Mexico. Explore this fascinating story. Admission is by Museum admission: EVERYONE FREE, EVERY SUNDAY. (Photo: Colcha Embroidery, Altar cloth-detail. Nina Arroyo Wood, Santa Fe, New Mexico, 2013.
