Tune in monthly for a behind the scenes sneak peek of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Collections with host and Curator of Collections, Amy G. Johnson (Isleta).
The arrival of the Summer Solstice during the annual cycle of Pueblo Dances inspires our June segment. Join Amy Johnson, Curator of Collections, for an in depth look at artworks and objects from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center’s Art Collection relating to our long-established Pueblo Dances. Learn more details about the artists who create dance regalia and 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.
