View into the Collection: Harvest Time at the Pueblos
12:00 am - 11:59 pm MDT
Join Amy Johnson, Curator of Collections, for an in-depth look at artwork and cultural items from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Permanent Collection. Our September segment celebrates harvest time at the Pueblos. After time spent during the hot summer months tending to our gardens, now is the time to harvest. Successful fall harvests provide plentiful corn and squash. Amy will share the importance of corn and squash, and their depiction in various art forms. Join us for a look at the selected art works, and the artists who create them.

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.
