Folk Art & Culture of Oaxaca, June 26–July 2, 2016: Oaxaca City, desig- nated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987, is rich with historic colonial architecture, exquisite museums, and vibrant folk-art traditions. In addi- tion to exploring the amenities of the city, you will visit thriving folk-art villages where talented artists create fabulous wood carvings, textiles, and pottery. You'll have the opportunity to visit the homes of master Zapotec and Mixe artists to watch them dem- onstrate and discuss the techniques and traditions that make their work so special. Opportunities to immerse yourself in the rich history and tra- ditions through visits to museums and the stunning archaeological site of Monte Alban will deepen your understanding of the native people. Your tour leaders, Nancy Walkup and Stevie Mack, will provide an intimate and rewarding travel experience. The magic of Oaxaca is guaranteed to inform your art and capture your soul! Tres Culturas: Exploring the Artis- tic Spirit of Santa Fe, July 13–19, 2016: The spirit of New Mexico may best be captured through the senses—the distinctive smell of wet earth from a storm, the scent of burning piñon, the incredibly turquoise sky, and the rough organic texture of rounded adobe forms. This spirit finds expres- sion in a unique way of life created from the contributions of three cul- tures: Pueblo Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo. Tres Culturas is designed to help travelers explore and understand the diversity of New Mexico's artistic heritage from ancient times to the present. Highlights include a tour of Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu, a celebration at a living history museum, in-person views of petro- glyphs, a visit to Taos Pueblo (also designated a UNESCO World Heri- tage site), a visit to Roxanne Swent- zell's Tower Gallery, and much more.
