We will then enjoy an expert-led lecture on Georgia O'Keeffe. One of the most significant artists of the 20th century, Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called “the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.” She was a leading member of the Stieglitz Circle artists, headed by Alfred Stieglitz, America’s first advocate of modern art in America. These avant-garde artists began to flourish in New York in the 1910s. O’Keeffe’s images—instantly recognizable as her own —include abstractions, large-scale depictions of flowers, leaves, rocks, shells, bones and other natural forms, New York cityscapes and paintings of the unusual shapes and colors of architectural and landscape forms of northern New Mexico.

It is said by the end of the day that the plaza is worn down into a bowl from a day of dancing.

It is a privilege to be allowed to attend Pueblo Feast Day Dances, which are both ceremonial and celebratory, and we ask that guests observe quietly and respectfully. (Photography of the dances is strictly forbidden.

We'll also be able to see many of the arts and crafts produced by Pueblo residents.

 Dinner: At the hotel
 Evening: This evening we'll be entertained by Cisco Guevara, a professional storyteller from Taos. Cisco honed his storytelling craft around campfires deep in the river canyons of northern New Mexico. A river runner since his teenage days in Los Alamos, he has become a New Mexico legend, instantly recognizable by his black hat, which was shaped—like the basalt rocks in the Rio Grande Gorge—by the organic power of the river, and famous for his vast knowledge of local lore.

Cisco’s stories range from his rebellious youth, to tales that draw on his Hispanic and Native American heritage, to hair-raising adventures in the wilderness, to haunting tales of love and loss. A headliner at the Taos Storytelling Festival for the past 11 years, Cisco performs regularly for groups in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, and has told his stories to rapt audiences as far afield as London and Paris.
