View into the Collection: Original Mural Sketches
The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is home to more than 20 murals by Pueblo artists. The vibrant works of art vividly convey the role of the seasons, the importance of prayerful dances, harvest, agriculture, and animals in our Pueblo lives. While we have in-person mural tours, the Center is also home to some of the mural submission sketches. Join our Curator of Collections Amy Johnson for a look at these original mural sketches, carefully stored in our collections archives.

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.
