Fray Angélico Chávez was born on April 10, 1910, and to mark what would have been his 100th birthday, the New Mexico History Museum’s Fray Angélico Chávez History Library will hold a daylong symposium. "My Penitente Land," a free, public event, takes place from 10 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday, April 10, in the museum auditorium (enter from Washington Avenue).
The symposium will gather the general public and scholars to exchange thoughts on Fray Angélico’s influence on New Mexico and share their stories about him. The History Library has a posted schedule for this event. Attendees will receive a commemorative poem by Jimmy Santiago Baca, printed on the historic presses at the Palace of the Governors.
