Palace Avenue First Friday Art Walk

Silver and Stones: Collaborations in Southwest Jewelry

Please join us with FREE Admission to all as we celebrate Art and History every first Friday evening of every month with some of our additional museum and gallery friends located along Palace Avenue in the heart of the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Each month we will highlight something new and wonderful to share. Together, we hope to educate, inspire, and encourage a love and appreciation of history and the diversity of art that the city different is so well known for. For this month, the History Museum invites you to enjoy an unusual jewelry collection from the 1940s and 1950s that exemplifies a beneficial economic relationship between Diné (Navajo) silversmith, David Taliman (1901–1967), and Jewish merchant, William C. Ilfeld (1905–1979), and located in our Palace of the Governors building.  Please enter by way of our main entrance at 113 Lincoln Avenue.
