lighted in the Hispanic Heritage Wing,
with a large collection of Spanish
Colonial folk art. Borrow a printed
guide at the door to appreciate the
Girard Wing's colorful display, every-
thing from puppets, masks and cos-
tumes to miniature villages, lacquered
boxes, Chinese carved opera figures and
even a wooden Ferris wheel from
Oaxaca with Mexican Day of the Dead
skeletons in each seat.
Former Neutrogena CEO Lloyd
Cotsen, a trained archeologist and inter-
national bazaar devotee, donated anoth-
er entire wing. "He married the boss'
daughter and traveled the world at com-
pany expense," a docent points out; or,
as Cotsen says on a video: "Everywhere I
went I carried an empty bag." Although
just one-tenth of the museum's 100,000-
item collection is shown at a time, be
advised that visitors may experience sen-
sory overload. Just be glad you don't
have to dust it!
By contrast, the neighboring Museum
of Indian Arts and Culture offers a
soothing romp through classic and con-
temporary Southwestern Indian culture
through paintings, sculpture, pottery,
jewelry, basketry and weaving. Listen via
headphones to the voices of Native
American elders describing their lifestyle
in the permanent exhibit, "Here, Now
and Always." Explaining the relationship
of nature to such everyday objects as
clothing accessories and jewelry, Navajo
representative Luci Tapahonso says: "We
wear the shiny silver of clear water. We
wear turquoise made of bright skies."
Other tribal members describe various
time-honored customs, including a
baby's "First Laugh Party" held at three
months to assure there will always be
togetherness.
Nearby, the private, nonprofit
Wheelwright Museum of the American
Indian is housed in a building shaped
like a traditional Hogan. It features
native art and, like the other museums, a
brimming gift shop. Afterward, unwind
by following the paving stones, in the
chile-inspired colors of red and green, on
the campus' Labyrinth, styled after the
one at Chartre Cathedral in France.
Whispers from across campus are audi-
ble. With a wry smile, Jennifer Marshall,
the museums' spokesperson, observes,
"It's very Santa Fe."
