The free Magical & Real Lecture Series continues at 2 p.m. at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, 1011 N. Richardson Ave., with Leo Mazow, Louise B. and J. Harwood Cochrane, curator of American art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This illustrated lecture explores windmill and related imagery in the art of Peter Hurd. In paintings, watercolors, drawings and even decorative arts, Hurd used windmills to demonstrate his love of landscape and the critical importance of water in New Mexico and its environs. Punctuating the art and cultural history addressed in this illustrated lecture, a concert, performed by The Coverlets, will address the persistence of water, drought, and the vast American Southwest as themes in popular music.
