Arguably, no other image has been more widespread and controversial within the Christian faith than that of Mary, the mother of Jesus. For centuries, Mary has been the subject of rifts between groups taking sides on Mariology and Mariolatry, in the process producing an exceptional wealth of religious art. Curator of the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe Alicia Romero brings her breadth of knowledge about New World religious iconography to the Albuquerque Museum (2000 Mountain Rd. NW) for a talk titled The Many Faces of Mary on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 1pm. For more information on this free, all-ages event, see cabq.gov/museum.
