The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is home to more than 20 murals by great Pueblo artists. These vibrant works of art vividly convey the role of the seasons, dance, harvest, agriculture, and animals in Pueblo life. The mural campaign was launched in 1977 by the Friends of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, a group of volunteers who raised money from donors around the world to bring the art of top Pueblo artists to the IPCC’s permanent collection. With our art collection integrated into our buildings through murals, visitors to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center are invited to engage with art directly and have an inspiring and personal experience of Pueblo art.
Our collection of murals includes work by Jose Rey Toledo (Jemez), Tommy Montoya (Ohkay Owingeh), Pablita Velarde (Santa Clara), Helen Hardin (Santa Clara), Phil Hughte (Zuni), Encarnacion Pena (San Ildefonso), Dennis Silva (Santa Clara), J.D. Medina (Zia), Juan Manuel “Bob” Chavez (Cochiti), Robert Montoya (Sandia, Ohkay Owingeh), Dominic Arquero (Cochiti), Art Menchego (Santa Ana), Charles Lovato (Santo Domingo), Francis Tafoya (Santa Clara), Norman Pacheco (Ohkay Owingeh), and Mallery Quetawki (Zuni).
