Dennis Hogan Brings his Unique Style to Museum

March 1 and 2, the Museum's Gift Shop welcomes master silversmith Dennis Hogan for a special trunk show and sale. Hogan moved to New Mexico after studying fine art at DePauw University, and has always had an interest in the history of early southwestern art and architecture, particularly the work of early Native American silversmiths. Forging modern jewelry using hundred year old traditional techniques has allowed Hogan the ability to create handcrafted jewelry that is simple in design, yet elegant in the execution of hammer strokes, stamping, and antique patinas.  The sale runs from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm both days.


Enjoy a Special Evening at the Museum on March 8 

Sunset Clubhouse
Night owls get ready: Desert Night Life is almost here! From nocturnal animals to telescopes, this evening is the perfect opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the Sonoran Desert at night. Use flashlights to find animal eyes shining in the dark or make an art project that shines under the black light. For the musically-inclined, pick up a ticket to see Jessi Colter live in concert at the Warden Oasis Theater at 6:30 pm.
