Subject: Cosgrove/Mimbres Exhibit Opening July 26

[ AzTeC / SWA SASIG ] :

From: Carolyn O'Bagy Davis Cobagy@aol.com

I am curating a Mimbres exhibit for the Silver City
Museum (New Mexico). The Cosgrove/Mimbres exhibit
will open at the Silver City Museum on July 26,
1-4 pm. It will be up through early 1999. The
exhibit looks at Hattie Cosgrove's life as an early
Silver City woman, the personal side of her life,
and it also takes in her wonderful Mimbres
archaeology. We have borrowed her incredible
Mimbres drawings, along with some of the Mimbres
bowls that she gave to MNA after her husband died
in 1936. We have borrowed other archaeological
materials from the Treasure Hill Foundation. There
will be a recreation of the 1924 camp at Swarts
ruin on the Mimbres River, photos, murals, Mimbres
bowls, and Hattie's drawings. Burt Cosgrove is
coming to Silver City for the opening--he is 92.
The Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society
has a field trip planned. The Museum's address is
312 West Broadway, Silver City, NM 88061 The phone
# is 505-538-5921. The museum director is Susan
Berry.
