Mesa Public Library will offer a Sunday afternoon of events as part of the downtown Winterfest celebration.
A new exhibition, “The Plazas of New Mexico” will open with a reception at 2:30 p.m. Dec 9., in conjunction with a talk by Chris Wilson of the University of New Mexico, the author of the book of the same title, at 1:30 p.m. in the upstairs meeting rooms of the library.
“The Plazas of New Mexico” documents the heritage of New Mexico’s public plazas and the everyday life and community celebrations that help sustain them. It traces three distinct design traditions — the Native American center place with kiva and terraced residential blocks; the Hispanic plaza with church and courtyard houses; and the Anglo square with courthouse and business blocks.
The exhibit, comprised of images from the book, bring to life three urban design traditions, while profiling recent plaza revitalization projects and newly designed community plazas.
“The Plazas of New Mexico” is about the past, for the future. Plaza site plans, elevation drawings, bird’s-eye views, community histories, historic photos and documentary photographs bring to life the history, physical setting and social life of 22 communities.
