Meadows Museum to Hold Discover Spain Festival

Celebrate Columbus Day by reading Christopher Columbus’ handwritten notes.

The Meadows Museum at SMU is holding a “Discover Spain!” festival Saturday, Oct. 10. People of all ages can explore the museum’s exhibits for free from 2 to 9 p.m.

The festival will include Spanish food and wine tasting, film screenings from the Dallas Film Society, Spanish music and dancing performances, scavenger hunts, and gallery talks every hour to explore the “Treasures from the House of Alba” exhibit, which includes a rare collection of Christopher Columbus’ logbook.

The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of Spanish art. The House of Alba is one of the most influential noble families in Europe, and at one time was the most illustrious household in Spain.

    What I would like to know is WHY in the world the ONLY REAL Spanish FLAMENCO isn’t invited to perform at these “discover” Spain events. Really SMU …do your research! Que no se enteraaaan ! All these local peformers and NONE of them from Spain.
