View into the Collection: Seasons of Dance at the Pueblos, Part 2
12:00 am - 11:59 pm MDT
Join Amy Johnson, Curator of Collections, for an in-depth look at artworks and objects from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Permanent Collection. Our August segment is a continuation of Seasons of Dance at the Pueblos. As we transition from the summer months into the cooler temperatures of fall and winter, the beat of the drum continues. The summer Feast Day dances send prayers for successful fall harvests; now, the cooler months call for prayers of successful hunts. In winter, holiday celebrations coincide with various dances at the Pueblos. Join us for further discussion about the artists who create dance regalia, as well as paintings of seasonal dance observances, the materials utilized, and our generous donors who contribute to our modest collection.

Amy’s work with the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center spans nearly 19 years, and her focus is on caring for nearly 4,000 works in our permanent collection. IPCC’s permanent collection consists of pottery, jewelry, textiles, baskets, regalia, paintings, prints, and a small collection of archaeological material. The works in our collection showcase each of the 19 Pueblos here in New Mexico with a small collection of cultural material from tribes of the Greater Southwest. The ongoing efforts to continually, and carefully preserve each piece for future generations of Pueblo artists, our guests, and researchers are paramount to the mission of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
