Old Man Gloom’s New Clothes: Santa Fe artist debuts Zozobra-themed group exhibition

Every child who attended a Santa Fe elementary school made some picture or papier-mâché version of the infamous Zozobra during their academic career. And then, if they were anything like me and my friends, they proceeded to burn at least one of these homemade depictions.

Track Marks: The Burning Man Editon

Blackrock City can kiss my ass. Santa Fe's been burning a giant dude to for way longer and with a lot less hippie.

Yuppers, it's Zozobra time (I want to put that in all caps because I'm so excited). Zozobra is the best day ever in Santa Fe. We all gather on a baseball field and send our gloom away by burning Zozo, or Old Man Gloom.

Step Up To Life

Zozobra 2009

Yesterday Nozlkoff and I took the #516 train to Santa Fe, and after two hours arrived in the rainy capital for the burning of Zozobra. For recent relocaters, troglodytes and people reading this from the Lesser Antilles, Zozobra is an 85 year-old Santa Fe tradition where the effigy of gloom is tortured and burned.

I’d never been, but always thought I would enjoy the strange spectacle.
