The Sedona Heritage Museum hosts many events for the community ranging from Christmas in the Park to the Fall Arts & Crafts Fair!
Paquimé, Chihuahua, Mexico is the most important archaeological site in the American Southwest and northern Mexico. Traders from this ancient city greatly influenced the Anasazi, Hohokam, and Mogollon cultures of the Southwest. Pottery from this site was the inspiration for modern Mata Ortiz ceramics. John Bezy, who has worked with the potters of Mata Ortiz for nearly 30 years, will discuss the archaeology of Paquime and the evolution of today’s world-class pottery.
Master artist Oralia Lopez will demonstrate how the pottery is painted.
A good selection of Mata Ortiz pottery will be available for purchase at Mata Ortiz prices.
Kevin Schindler is the Historian and Media Contact for the Lowell Observatory. He will be giving a mostly nonfictional account of Theodore Roosevelt and his ties to Arizona.
The Museum is partnering with the Sedona Public Library for the ‘Read
Around Sedona’ program, focusing on the new book House of Apache
Fires by Morgan Jameson. To further interpret what Sedona was like in
the 1940s when Jack and Helen Frye built their home, Paul Thompson
and Ruth Jordan Van Epps will talk about their experiences of living
in Sedona during this era.
Jan Taylor has done 16 end-to-end Grand Canyon rafting trips and will be talking about “Rafting the Grand Canyon: A Journey Through Time” and canyon geology.
