The Ignacio Community Library will continue its Latino Americans: 500 Years of History series focusing on the local Latino community.

Our next program The Wooden Canvas Project will center on the documentation of Hispano herding depicted in arborglyphs around southwest Colorado. San Juan Mountains Association Cultural Program Director Ruth Lambert, Ph.D., will lead this presentation.

In 2015, The Wooden Canvas won First Place History from the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA). The project is also set to receive the Carolyn Bancroft History Prize for 2015 and Dr. Lambert will accept the award at the Colorado Preservation Inc.’s Conference in Denver.

This lecture is the fourth program initiated through the grant Latino Americans: 500 Years of History funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and American Library Association (ALA). All programs are free and open to the public. For more information on this and future programs, please contact us at 970-563-9287.
