Gallery talk with Enrique Lamadrid

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

Gallery talk by John Brandi

Join the New Mexico History Museum every second Saturday of the month from June-February for a presentation and conversation-style gallery talk in conjunction with the current exhibit, Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

Good friends with Gary Snyder and Allen Ginsberg, Sakaki was encouraged by them to travel to the US, and in 1971 he was drawn to northern New Mexico where he ended up living in a school bus below Taos Mountain. Sakaki’s poetry is marked by humor and appreciation for a simple lifestyle, the embodiment of unconventional wisdom and spirited non-conformism. Brandi, founder of Tooth of Time Books, published Sakaki’s first major collection poetry, "Real Play" and will speak about Sakaki’s poetry and role as a countercultural literary icon.

Be one of the first to see Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest.

An Evening with Gary Snyder, Hosted by Jack Loeffler
New Mexico History Museum
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The man known as the “the Godfather of Counterculture,” Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder ignites Santa Fe’s 50th anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love with this special kick-off event. Via poetry, prose, and personal stories, Snyder will share his perspective and experiences on the rise of the countercultural West Coast scene, the cross-pollination between the California and New Mexico scenes from the 1950s to the present, and his role as a literary godfather to those who sought alternatives to the mainstream.

Immediately following the presentation, there will be a book-signing in the lobby hosted by the Collected Works Bookstore. Snyder will sign selected books; Jack Loeffler, Meredith Dacidson and several contributors will sign their new book, "Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest" published by the Museum of New Mexico Press. 

Snyder’s keynote address launches this summer’s multi-venue multi-partner cultural collaboration, Be Here Now: Summer of Love Santa Fe and coincides with the opening day of the exhibition Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest at the New Mexico History Museum. 

This event will be at the Lensic Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25 and available at http://tickets.ticketssantafe.org/ 

Proceeds help support the New Mexico History Museum’s public programs and exhibitions.
