Winter 2012 Cover

El Palacio, the oldest museum magazine in the country, is the source for knowledge about the art, history and culture of the Southwest. Published since 1913, El Palacio—now as then—reflects the work of New Mexico’s four state museums in Santa Fe; its six State Monuments; and its singular Office of Archaeological Studies.
