Frontend Website Design For The Palace Of The Governor’s – Tesoros de Devocion Exhibit

Project Description:

Front End Website Design. In collaboration with New Mexico Highlands University, Andrew Wollner, Jason Valdez & Joe Weber

Treasures of Devotion/Tesoros de Devoción contains bultos, retablos, and crucifijos, dating from the late 1700s to 1900. They demonstrate how European stylistic traditions and iconography were combined with new palettes, different styles, and distinctive regional decorative designs that transformed New Mexican santo making into a unique hybrid. Highlighting the exhibit will be esoteric pieces such as the Crucifixion in a Large Nicho by the Laguna Santero and La Santísima Trinidad, a wood retablo with an applied paper painting of the Holy Trinity. Treasures of Devotion/Tesoros de Devoción exhibition opened at the Palace of the Governors/New Mexico History Museum on July 20, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. and will be a long-term exhibition.
