Marching Into Spring

Lecture Series at San Miguel Chapel
Cornerstones invites you to join JAKE BARROW, Director, Cornerstones Community Partnerships on Saturday, April 6 at 4PM for a talk on:

A Solar Option for San Miguel Chapel—Next Step in a 15-Year Partnership?
(Jake received his B.F.A., University of North Carolina and Architectural Preservation certificates from the International Center for the Study of Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) in Rome and Venice, Italy. He spent three decades with the National Park Service, from the National Capitol to the Southwest. Jake was Program Director of Cornerstones Community Partnerships from 2009 and has been the Executive Director since 2016. He was awarded the New Mexico Lifetime Achievement Heritage Preservation Award in 2015.)
Jake’s talk is the last in a series sponsored by St. Michael’s High School and the De la Salle Christian Brothers, owners and custodians of San Miguel Chapel since 1881. The series is called Spring Dialogues 2019 and the goal is to deepen understanding of El Barrio de Analco National Historic District, and its historically significant structures, by inviting leading authorities to share their discoveries and insights. The El Barrio de Analco National Historic District is a National Historic Landmark District centered at the junction of East De Vargas Street and Old Santa Fe Trail in Santa Fe, NM. It is made up of seven buildings, including San Miguel Chapel, and is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods of European origin in the United States.  
All talks will be held at the San Miguel Chapel on five consecutive Saturdays; March 9 through April 6, from 4pm-5:15pm. The suggested donation is $10.
Presenters include two historians, a folklore specialist, an art conservator, and an architectural preservation expert.
Topics include: 
• The relationship between Santa Fe and Analco: the Villa and the Barrio 
• Tlaxcalans and Genízaros: Analco residents as defenders and food-producers 
• Imported decorations and in-kind wages: a closer look at the 1710 Chapel reconstruction report
• What multispectral imaging technology has revealed about 300-year old Segesser hide paintings 
• Solar panels for the 400-year old Chapel?

New Solar Initiative Funding Recipient
Cornerstones, in partnership with Remy’s Good Day Fund, has just awarded its 10th grant since the inception of our Solar Initiative in the last quarter of 2017.
The most recent recipient is the Energy Sovereignty Institute which will use the funds to hold a Stakeholder Summit Convening.  The Institute is a social innovation initiative designed to promote the benefits of decentralized energy systems and technologies for Native American communities, and to advance their availability and use.  A key function will be to provide a nationally recognized clearinghouse for related information, resources and initiatives.
