Los Campos  The Camps of Litchfield Park  1929-1986

Written by Cruz Pariga Dominguez and Belen Soto Moreno this long awaited book is now available at the Museum Gift Shop. It contains over 300 photos and tells the story of the Mexican-Americans (both immigrant and native born) in Litchfield Park.  It covers 1929-1986 in photos and anecdotes of life written by the authors who grew up in the Camps.

 

 

Self-Guided Walking Tour of Historic Downtown Litchfield Park:  This 20 page booklet contains a historic and contemporary color photo of each of the 15 stops in Litchfield Park’s historic district, as well as a short description of that site.  Stop by the Museum to get one today!

 

Miniature Kachinas/Katsinas from Arizona:  Kachinas are believed to be spirits or personifications of things in the real world.  The central theme is the presence of life in all objects that fill the universe.  Each sculpture is unique and depicts a different spirit. 

 

 Oaxacan Wood Carvings (Folk Art) from Mexico:  These wood carvings are sometimes called Alebrijes and are an art form that originated in the small villages in Oaxaca, Mexico.  Using simple tools and incredible creativity, wood carvers create whimsical animals and mythological creatures that are made out of Copal, a tree that grows in the mountains of Oaxaca.  Traditionally, the men do the carving and the women do the beautiful painting.  Each family has developed their own distinct style; and each animal is unique.
