El Puente de Galisteo 

According to editor Lucy Lippard, “in January 1997, the first issue of EL Puente de Galisteo came out with the blessings of the Galisteo Community Association and help from several accomplices no longer living here. In homage to colloquial New Mexican Spanish, the newsletter was called La Puente, like the road crossing the bridge. But everyone was horrified, and the second issue was the proper El Puente

“The newsletter, which reports on community activities and issues in and around the village, has been published monthly ever since, except for summer months of July–August and an occasional bi-monthly issue when my work schedule is too heavy. It is free and available only to Galisteo residents (and some former residents). Each issue is sponsored by an individual or business in Galisteo. Contact me with address changes, a new subscription, or if you wish to contribute.” 

—Lucy Lippard, editor,
