ART IN HISTORIC PECOS
Bel Falleiros’ Artist-in-Residence Experience at Pecos National Historical Park, in Northern New Mexico
Bel Falleiros, a Brazilian installation artist, was selected by the National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) to be the latest Artist-in-Residence at Pecos National Historical Park, a multi-unit park that contains the remnants of the once vibrant Pecos Pueblo. Located just a half hour outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico between the town of Pecos and the historic Glorieta Battlefield, the park launched this cooperative venture with NPAF to bring artists to Pecos to work and interact with the public. Hear about the diverse history of Pecos National Historical Park and what it’s like to be a National Parks Arts Foundation Artist-in-Residence! Check out the winter 2017 issue of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine, featuring interviews with artist Bel Falleiros and Becky Latanich, Chief of Interpretation & Education.
