Millicent Rogers Spikes Winter Doldrums with Art, Food, and Chocolate

Just when everyone else is snugged-in deep for winter, Taoseños are busy getting artwork ready to show for the miniatures exhibit held every February at Millicent Rogers Museum. But this year's annual exhibit is one of three events planned for this weekend - two hosted by the museum, and the third being a Heritage Inspirations dinner with 10 percent of proceeds donated to the museum.

"Millicent Rogers Museum will host three events at the museum that relate to the museum's collection of Southwest art," said MRM Director Dr. Caroline Jean Fernald last week. Namely, these are:

  • The 17th Annual Miniatures Show and Sale opening Friday (Feb. 8) from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
  • "Chaco Choco," a lecture and tasting about Mesoamerican chocolate happening Sunday (Feb. 10) from 2-4 p.m.
  • "Manko! (Come Eat!)," a dinner and cultural event by Heritage Inspirations, celebrating Puebloan culture, also on Sunday (Feb. 10), from 7-9 p.m.

Fernald notes that all three events are fundraisers for both the museum and participating local artists and businesses.
