New Mexico has been known for its quality punched tin art work for nearly two centuries. The art is believed to have been brought up from old Mexico in the early 1800’s. Since then, New Mexico artists have created their own styles. Mr. Gabriel, who lives in the Sandia mountains, is one of the artists working in the style of the early tin workers.

Please call your library's Children's Room for more information.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library.
