SILVER CITY: The Silver City Museum will host an interactive workshop for families and about families. Participants will create their own family tree and a unique family portrait.
With a focus on family stories and origins, museum staff will guide participants through the current exhibit Contemporary Casta Portraiture: Nuestra "Calidad" to use the artist Delilah Montoya's exploration of modern genetics and family ethnic diversity to reflect on their own families.
