Santa Fe celebrates a half-century since the fabled Summer of Love, a pivotal era of protest, social upheaval, and consciousness-raising that marked the emergence of American counterculture.
The New Mexico History Museum’s Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest exhibition explores the 1960s pilgrimage of young people to New Mexico, violent protests on the campus of the University of New Mexico, alternative communal living experiments, and the founding of environmental and Native American rights activists’ groups.
Few New Mexico traditions provide as many giggles as watching a blind-folded kid take a swing at a piñata! The giggles turn into shouts of glee when that swing connects and the other kids scramble for candy.
Giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “the call of the wild,” you’ll be jamming to the art and science of sound at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
