Roswell UFO Festival 2012

In 2010 I had a residency with Gallery 408 in Carrizozo, New Mexico.  In search of art supplies, I drove to the nearest sizable town, Roswell, and blundered into the middle of the Roswell UFO Festival.  I never really thought about the "Roswell Incident" before, but after that,  I was fascinated.  Stanton Friedman and some of the other panelists I heard have been coming to Roswell for some 40 years, maybe longer.  Later, while spending time in Zozo, I met locals who had relatives and grandparents who told them strange stories (the incident happened in 1947).  I've wanted to go back to the conference ever since.  With Freddy Silva there, after last years expedition to sacred sites in England, it's going to be especially interesting.  And 2012 is here at last....I'm sure there will be people there with interesting things to say about that too!

Roswell also is home to the Roswell Artists Residency, and has two world-class art museums as a result.  Anybody want to go?  

Freddy Silva is one of the world’s leading researchers of crop circles, ancient systems of knowledge and the interaction between temples and consciousness. He is best-selling author of ‘Secrets in the Fields: The Science and Mysticism of Crop Circles’. His new book is Common Wealth:  The Origin of Sacred Sites and the Rebirth of Ancient Wisdom. He has also directed three documentaries.
