Wooden Canvas – The Documentation and Study of Historic Hispano Arborglyphs (tree carvings) along the Pine-Piedra Stock Driveway
This project expands on early 2000s SJMA work that recorded carved images at two herder camp locations. The current project includes archaeological field documentation at the camps, historical research on Hispano settlement and herding activities, oral histories with carvers and their descendants, three exhibits, and a project book. Trained cultural volunteers continue to assist with several aspects of the project. The museum exhibits opened in 2014 and will re-open in summer/fall of 2015. The project book, The Wooden Canvas: Arborglyphs as Reflections of Hispano Life Along the Pine-Piedra Stock Driveway is available through the SJMA bookstore.
